Mariposa : celebrating Canadian folk music : About the project

The Project

Celebrating Mariposa developed out of a desire to highlight elements of the archives of the Mariposa Folk Foundation, made up of over 120 metres of textual, photographic and audiovisual material.

In addition to sorting, arranging and describing the contents of the 2007 donation from the festival's board of directors, the Clara Thomas Archives & Special Collections wanted to offer researchers a window into the richness and breadth of the holdings.

Although the archives cannot digitize and provide online access to every item in the Mariposa holdings, we hope this collection of selected items will give online audiences a taste of the festival as it was fifty years ago.
