About KY Place

KY Place is a documentary web series that encourages conversations about issues relevant to Kentucky, without shying from taboos. It asks questions and seeks answers while understanding that sometimes there are none.
A place well known for bourbon, coal, and horse racing, the Bluegrass State has become a folksy centerpiece on the national stage that’s commonly misunderstood. Using the shareable nature of the online format, this series seeks to give voice to those who have been historically marginalized and show that this state – like many places around the world – is complex, diverse, and beautiful.
Progress starts at the community level, and communities grow when neighbors talk to one another. KY Place is the story of those conversations.
