RUX Lexington Update


Good morning from #kyrux2017! We grabbed a quick cup of coffee at @thirdstreetstuff before the day’s KY RUX festivities, and we couldn’t stop swooning over all of the wonderful art around the shop. #kyfolklife #folkart from Instagram:

KFP to host Kentucky Rural-Urban Exchange


We are excited to announce that the Kentucky Folklife Program is a new regional host partner for the Kentucky Rural-Urban Exchange, which is coming to Bowling Green this summer!

Kentucky RUX is a partnership between @artoftherural and @appalshop that brings rural and urban people together in unique community settings over three weekend-long intensives each summer. During these intensives, members work together to find commonalities, deepen, connections to the people and places of the Commonwealth, and collaborate on projects that improve Kentucky communities. You can join RUX by submitting an application by 4/28/17.
