Lullabies of New York

Lullabies of New York (CFLNY) will recruit and train artists, grassroots organizations, community advocates, youth, and ethnic media journalists with strong ties to folk and traditional art forms to become “Citizen Folklorists” (CFs) and document traditional lullabies. CFLNY will train CFs to: (1) work within their own communities to responsibly record traditional lullabies and document them with cell phones, cameras, ethnographic interviews, and still photography; (2) present at local community festivals to share their findings and the artists with whom they have worked (when applicable) (3) use best practices in depositing their digital assets within the online content management system called NYSCA Living Traditions.
