In Fall of 2019, I joined the Kentucky Folklife Program and a team of WKU Folk Studies students and faculty in producing four narrative stages showcasing South Central Kentucky traditional culture at a local cultural festival in Horse Cave, Kentucky.
Throughout the day, I rotated between production roles including documenting the event with video and photography and managing stage audio. I also helped to lead a narrative stage, with WKU professor Dr. Tim Evans, in which Horse Cave locals shared stories of community history in celebration of the town’s bicentennial.
