Join the Burgeron family this summer exploring the fascinating world of fairy tales at the annual Bovine County Fairy Tale Fesitival. Artists in residence come and go or stay the summer long. Many activities are spontaneous and grow from who is present at the time. Regular on-going scheduled workshops are also being offered for those more comfortable with a structure.
Each week a new fairy tale genre and DS106 “Assignment” will be featured. See the schedule below with links to more information for those who want to catch up or jump ahead . Participate in a weekly workshop anytime or dip your digital toes into all nine!
