About A Culture Carried: Bosnians in Bowling Green

This exhibit, produced by the Kentucky Folklife Program and the Kentucky Museum in partnership with WKU’s Department of Folk Studies and Anthropology, is made possible by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, as well as funding from WKU Office of International Programs in conjunction with the International Year of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

This exhibit is a product of the Kentucky Folklife Program’s Bowling Green Bosnia Oral History Project. In the Fall of 2015, with support from the WKU Institute for Citizenship and Social Responsibility (now WKU’s Center for Citizenship & Social Justice), the Kentucky Folklife Program began the Bowling Green Bosnian Oral History Project in collaboration with members of Bowling Green’s Bosnian community and faculty from the Department of Folk Studies & Anthropology. This ongoing project continues to document the stories and rich cultural heritage of Bowling Green’s Bosnian American community. More information here.
