Alana was the first in the group to complete the research given to her and present it to our group. She did a great job of looking into otehr events and took on the advice given to her. She presented the work in an easy to read way too, which made disecting it much easier.
There was a suprising number of other folk festivals in the nearby area. Another route to take would be american folk events, only there understanding of folk is not 100% the same as ours.
She also came up with an extencive list of ideas based on her own research. After she posted these onto our group, we have been discussing and evolving these existing ideas and coming up with more potential ideas of our own.
I have come up with a few very strong ideas myself that i will be pitching to the group.
