Empower Kentucky Summit has ended

Kentuckians have made it clear that we want an energy future that supports jobs, health, equity and climate – and we have great ideas for how to bring that about. The Empower Kentucky Summit will be largest gathering ever of a diverse set of Kentuckians figuring out what it will take to bring about Kentucky’s Bright Energy Future. 

For the past year we’ve been listening to the ideas, hopes and needs of Kentuckians, learning from what other states have done, and tapping into technological and economic expertise to put together a draft plan for what’s possible, what it will take and why it matters for Kentucky to make a just transition to a clean energy economy 

If you’re interested in being part of a well-informed, creative, visionary, justice-oriented conversation about building the agenda for Kentucky’s energy future, join us September 30 – October 1 in Louisville.

Workshop - Cultural Organizing: Using Story Circles to Generate Understanding

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This workshop will focus on using story circle methods, developed during the Civil Rights Movement by the Free Southern Theater, to devise creative performances about important community concerns. This will be a space for artists, cultural organizers and people who don't necessarily identify as artists to experience using shared story listening and telling techniques. We'll explore ways this approach can contribute to creating a shared vision for a healthy, resilient and sustainable future. Workshop facilitators include Shannon Woolley and Ebony Jordan of Louisville's Looking for Lillith theater company and Bob Martin of Clear Creek Creative in Rockcastle County, Kentucky.
