Harlan & Covington: A Rural-Urban Creative Placemaking Collaboration

The Appalachian Program at Southeast Kentucky Community & Technical College has been working with a coalition of Harlan County community members and artists, designers, and urban planners in Covington, Kentucky to do economic and community development work in Harlan County. The work is an outgrowth of the Kentucky Rural-Urban Exchange and is affiliated with an Appalachian Regional Commission POWER grant, Flex-E grant, and the Appalachian Teaching Project. Community members and their Covington creative placemaking partners will discuss the process, the results for the community, and future project work. In addition to the three named presenters, SKCTC Appalachian Studies students and community members will also be part of the presentation.
