Call For Proposals Issued For 2018 Johnny Cash Heritage Festival

JONESBORO – A call for proposals has been issued by Arkansas State University Heritage Sites and The Historic Dyess Colony: Johnny Cash Boyhood Home for a symposium as part of the 2018 Johnny Cash Heritage Festival, Thursday through Saturday, Oct. 18-20, in Dyess.

The theme for the festival is “The Ties that Bind.” Presentations that appeal to general audiences, as well as academic participants, are especially welcome. Research and artistic presentations that incorporate music, images, film, computer graphics and other interactive elements will be given first preference.

“When families from throughout Arkansas relocated to the Dyess Colony in the 1930s seeking a fresh start, they formed strong connections in their new community,” stated Dr. Adam Long, director of the festival symposium.   MORE
