Baton Rouge Traditions

The Louisiana Folklife Survey is an ongoing project of the Louisiana Folklife Program which seeks out traditional artists and communities and documents them through interview, tape, and/or film. The Louisiana Folklife Survey Form can be used by professional folklorists and community members. The form enables us to gather information about individuals in a simple, straightforward manner. Information from the survey forms is added to the Louisiana Folklife Database. Click here for more information.

The Baton Rouge Folklife Survey is a new project focusing specifically on the capital area. The East Baton Rouge Parish Library, along with community partners, is seeking to develop a series of programs highlighting the cultural heritage of the city, beginning with the findings of Louisiana State University's Urban Ethnography course, led by Dr. Joyce Marie Jackson. Stay tuned for more information.
