One audio cassette. Venkatasubban discusses the annual celebration of Lakshmi Pooja she holds each year.

The Folk Arts in Education Project in Duval County was a joint venture between the Duval County School System and the Florida Folklife Program. It was started in 1984 by folklorist David Taylor with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts to add to existing social studies curriculum. The project consisted of field research to identify local traditions and folk artists, a series of five two-day seminars to acquaint teachers with the use of folklore and folk arts, and in-school programs conducted by a folklorist and traditionalist which included visits by local folk artists. Taylor ran it until 1986. In 1988, Gregory Hansen re-initiated it with minor changes.

Collection
Florida Folklife Collection
Description
Four color slides. Images of Semigran's hand woven Jewish prayer shawls. Jewish tradition is to wear fringes on the corners of four-cornered garments. Since this is no longer a commonly worn type of garment, it is customary to wear a Tallit, a prayer shawl, during morning services. A Tallit can be made from any material and can be any color. The Dade Folk Arts Survey was conducted in 1986 by folklorists Tina Bucuvalas, Nancy Nusz and Laurie Sommers in order to identify folk arts and folk artists for the special folklife area at the 34th Annual Florida Folk Festival. The traditions are mainly Haitian, Jamaican, Mexican, Bahamian, Cuban and Jewish and cover a wide range of skills and art forms.
