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 horses, the Bluegrass State is a culturally rich centerpiece on the national stage that’s commonly misunderstood. Stories of Kentucky are often told by non-local media, which provide the rest of the world with an incomplete representation of our collective challenges and hard-fought victories.
Using the shareable nature of the online format, this series seeks to give voice to those who have been historically marginalized and reclaim our narrative, to show that this state—like many places around the world—is complex, diverse, and beautiful.
