Celebrated our state’s rural communities through performing arts, a collection of oral histories and an exploration of Nebraska farm life. Undergraduate students conducted oral history interviews in rural communities which engaged statewide conversations about agriculture through the arts. The Nebraska Hayseed project was constructed to create a platform where farm families can openly speak about their life experiences.
