  • Three audio cassettes. Recording of a public meeting held at the Florida International University to discuss the new Florida Folk Festival policies. In April 1982, the Department of State (DOS) and its Florida Folklife Program (FFP) sent out notice that the policies were changing. The result was a highly charged meeting between the FFP, the Florida Folklife Council, and the many folk artists. (See C83-90 and C83-91 in S 1576, box 10.) That fall, once the policy was completed, the FFP and the DOS offered several public meetings across the state. Includes discussion of the policy as well as input from various attendees as to the future of the festival. In addition to Miami, meetings were held in Tampa and White Springs.
