KY Place was created out of a desire to reconnect my fellow Kentuckians—to use the film medium to facilitate meaningful conversations about the future of our commonwealth.

In the upcoming season, we discover Kentucky’s rich hemp heritage, follow the footsteps of modern-day civil rights leaders, and visit the quirky arts district tucked away in a quiet river town. With each film, we seek to understand the history and potential future of our respective communities, recognizing both the traditions that bring us together and the obstacles that hold us back.

As a proof of concept, KY Place demonstrates how locally-produced media could function as a catalyst for solution-oriented discussions, both for Kentuckians and for people facing similar challenges elsewhere.

Consider donating to KY Place and your tax-deductible contribution will help further production of this series and elevate the shining individuals that make our state unique. Thank you.
