Description

What makes a town or small community a place where people want to live? Where strangers want to move to? Video quickie on the Great Mountain Mural Mega Fest organized by the Southeast Kentucky Revitalization Project, which is coordinated by the Appalachian Studies Program at Harlan County’s Southeast Community and Technical College. The goal of the Fest was to train artists, community folks, and development personnel in the art and business of mural making as public arts projects that can bring residents together, beautify communities, and visibly demonstrate that these are places people care about — something the organizers believe is essential to revitalizing our coalfield communities.
