Arts In Education
In order to enhance studies of history and culture, LI Traditions offers
three in-school education programs: Maritime Folk Arts program, ethnic
folk arts programs, and programs that examine community architecture.
Surveys & Research
Long Island Traditions uses oral interviews, photography, participant
observation, historical research and artifact analysis to document cultural
traditions passed down within families and communities.
Long Island Traditions focuses on traditional and vernacular architecture,
sites and structures built by ordinary individuals for their own needs
or those of their community.
Each year Long Island Traditions recognizes persons and organizations
who are active in preserving their cultural traditions learned within
their families and communities, and passing them down to the next generation
and in educating the public.
