The survey will also explore the continuation of com- munal traditions tied to saints' feasts and other religious cere- monies, seasonal celebrations and popular arts. A second goal of the survey will be to work with local organizations, social service orga- nizations, and community leaders to assess how they are or could be working to support individual artists and community based cul- tural activities.
