Texas Folklife Receives City of Austin GTOPS Award Certificate

The City of Austin's Grant for Technology Opportunities Program (GTOPS) award presentation took place during the Austin City Council's March 22nd meeting.  The GTOPS program was designed in 2001 by the City's Telecommunications Commission to support digital technology projects that show promise of benefiting our community.

This year the City of Austin awarded Texas Folklife $22,415 to support "Stories from Deep in the Heart", the educational collaboration with Austin Independent School District and KUT-FM in which students and teachers are trained to produce short documentaries about their own communities for public radio.

Board Member Susan Morehead and Former Executive Director Nancy Bless accepted the award on behalf of Texas Folklife.  Congratulations!
