Devastating Fire at Brazil Museum is a Reminder to think about Disaster Preparedness

By now I am sure many of you have heard of the tragedy that occurred at Brazil's National Museum where many significant artifacts were destroyed by a fire. You can read more about the fire here<https://www.theatlantic.com/science/archive/2018/09/brazil-rio-de-janeiro-museum-fire/569299/>.

Please consider talking to your organization about getting an emergency response and recovery plan in place for the protection of your people and your collections. At the very minimum, you can fill out a Pocket Response Plan, a two page document that you fill out and fold up and put in your wallet so that when an emergency strikes, you can just pull it out and have the numbers of who to call right here. You can find that template and other resources at www.mindyourcollections.org.<http://www.mindyourcollections.org/>

Two Oregon Folklife Network Community Conversations in Sept.

A Community Conversation with the Novak Family

Join folklorist Jennie Flinspach and local restauranteurs the Novak Family for a conversation about some of the cultural traditions of Linn County and the people who practice them. The talk will be Thursday, September 20, at 3:00 PM at Novak's Hungarian Restaurant, 208 2nd St. SW in Albany.

This open community conversation invites audiences to connect with tradition keeper Matilda Novak and her children about their family history and the authentic Hungarian cuisine that their family has made for many years. The Novaks will also demonstrate the methods they use to create the traditional dishes served in their family restaurant.
Folklorist Dr. Thomas Grant Richardson, an independent folklorist based in New Mexico, spent several days in Albany and the surrounding area speaking to members of the community, documenting their traditions, and learning how their occupations shaped their lives as a part of the Oregon Folklife Network's Willamette Valley Statewide Folklife Survey.
Funding for this program comes from the National Endowment for the Arts to the Oregon Folklife Network, Oregon's designated Folk & Traditional Arts Program. The project sent trained folklorists to meet and interview culture keepers in Benton, Linn, Lane, Marion Counties and at the Confederated Tribes of Grande Ronde.

Jennie Flinspach, OFN Summer Folklife Fellow, received a BA in English from Simpson College and Master's degrees in Folklore and Arts Management from the University of Oregon. With the OFN, Flinspach has managed the Oregon Culture Keepers' Roster and interned with the Warm Springs Folklife Fieldschool. As an archivist for the Randall V. Mills Archive of Northwest Folklore, she designed and edited Cooking with Folklore: Recipes from the Archives. Prior to moving to Oregon, Flinspach was a high school English and drama teacher in the Iowa public school system.
