East Kentucky Food and Dance Trail (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: East Kentucky Food and Dance Trail
Author: Brett Ratliff
Author: Abigail Huggins
Author: Lora Smith
Abstract: The East Kentucky Food & Dance Trail, a collaboration between Hindman Settlement School and the Appalachian Food Summit, highlights the area's venues that encourage community building, cross-generational learning, and entrepreneurship through our culinary and dance traditions. The Trail promotes regional relationship building, as well as cultural education and tourism opportunities for residents and visitors in east Kentucky. Hindman Settlement School started the Food & Dance Trail conversation over a year and a half ago and these conversations have resulted in twenty-five affiliates from farmer's markets, to restaurants, community centers, nonprofits, and others; and we feel like we're only just getting started. In January 2017 we brought on Appalachian Transition Fellow, Abby Huggins to help coordinate the project. The Food & Dance Trail is grounded in diverse stories, seeing food and dance as both things that gather people together. This interactive workshop will give a brief overview of the Food & Dance Trail while also creating space for story circles, oral history sharing, and a square dance.
