Images of the Minorcan Cultural Exchange Tour

Images of the Minorcan Cultural Exchange Tour

Date
1983-10
Description
Four images. Duplicates of fieldwork images of the Minorcan Cultural Exchange Tour. The Minorcan Cultural Exchange Tour, which ran from 10/6-13/1983, was created through an agreement between the Florida Dept. of State and the Mediterranean island of Minorca to celebrate Florida's two hundred year Minorcan heritage. First brought over as workers for a British plantation in the 1770s, most soon escaped the harsh working conditions and settled in St. Augustine. The tour was organized by Secretary of State George Firestone, the Bureau of Florida Folklife (Bulger, Belland, Loomis), Division of Historical Resources (Jean Lee and Paul Weaver) and the Florida Museum of History (Pat Wickman). The tour, with 140 performers and delegates from Minorca, consisted of a series of public performances and emerged out of the smaller program, the Minorcan Heritage Week held in May 1983. The tour traveled from St. Augustine, to the University of Florida, to EPCOT, to Cypress Gardens, then finally to Miami for departure back to Spain. Some records for the tour can be found in S 1578, Box 3, folder 81.

Description
Twenty color slides. Images created as fieldwork for the Folk Arts Apprenticeship Program. The Folk Arts Apprenticeship Program began in 1983 with a NEA grant of $22,000. The program provided an opportunity for master folk artists to share technical skills and cultural knowledge with apprentices in order to keep the tradition alive. Apprentices must have had some experience in the tradition and agreed to train for at least six months. The first project director was Blanton Owen, later replaced by folklorist Peter Roller. The program was continued each year through 2003.
