What does Vermont sound like to you?

Youth and Adults of Earth! Join The Vermont Folklife Center for an exciting summer voyage in an audio exploration of your community. The Green Record is a series of audio stories that represent life in Vermont to the universe at large. Inspired by The Voyager’s Golden Record, the collection is produced by local youth, families, friends, neighbors, and you! You and/or your team will create "a kind of time capsule, intended to communicate a story of our world," to future humans and beyond. Whether your Green Record is self-organized, created in our workshops, or put together by your team, Vermont Folklife Center and Fletcher Free Library are your ground control.
