Founded in 1984, the Vermont Folklife Center (http://www.vermontfolklifecenter.org) documents and presents the cultures and traditions of Vermont. Beginning in 1990 with our Peabody Award winning series, "Journey's End: The Memories and Traditions of Daisy Turner and Her Family" we have produced audio documentaries on rural culture in Vermont, life in New England and the experiences of World War II veterans that have aired on local and national NPR affiliates. In 2006 with Erica Heilman we established the statewide program, Youth Radio Vermont (http://www.youthradiovermont.org) that trains young people in ethnographic methodology and audio documentary production.
