ACE Visits ICTM in Italy

May 7, 2018

The Association for Cultural Equity returned to Italy this Spring to honor its rich history of collaborations with Italian singers, dancers, and tradition-bearers, recording and appreciating the region’s living heritage. 

In April, ACE President Anna Lomax Wood, Executive Director Jorge Arévalo Mateus, Managing Director Kiki Smith-Archiapatti and family visited [ICTM] to repatriate songs and videos with singers and descendents, and discuss partnerships to preserve Italian heritage. It was a moving and encouraging visit, with recollections of Alan’s early trips to the region and commitments to support folkways into the future.
