The Paducah Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) will present a Mountain Workshops showcase at Maiden Alley Cinema on Thursday, March 2 at 7 PM.
This free event will feature videos produced by Mountain Workshops participants when Paducah hosted the week-long training for visual storytellers in October 2016. The public is invited to attend, particularly those locals who were story subjects.
“The Mountain Workshops’ week in Paducah produced dozens of videos that creatively weave threads of local life into stories that captivate,” says Fowler Black, Paducah CVB Sales Director. “This showcase will celebrate the spirit of the community and delivers an opportunity to see ourselves in authentic moments.”
The internationally-recognized Mountain Workshops is presented by Western Kentucky University (WKU) School of Journalism. Since 1976, the Mountain Workshops have drawn a team of dedicated teachers and determined participants to a Kentucky community, where they explore the richness of the community and the possibilities and challenges of visual storytelling.
An exhibition of photographs and video clips from Mountain Workshops interviews in Paducah will be on display at the Yeiser Art Center from February 25 to April 15 with an opening reception on February 25.
