CULTURAL ENRICHMENT THROUGH COMMUNITY ACTION PROJECT. ANNUAL REPORT FOR PERIOD ENDING JULY 1, 1967. (TITLE SUPPLIED).
WILSON, O.J.
WESTERN KENTUCKY UNIVERSITY INITIATED A PROJECT TO DETERMINE THE CULTURAL NEEDS AND INTERESTS OF THE AREA IT SERVES. IN PHASE ONE, CITY AND COUNTY REPRESENTATIVES ATTENDED A SYMPOSIUM ON ART, MUSIC, LIBRARY, LECTURE, AND THEATER RESOURCES AND FORMED A REGIONAL ADVISORY COUNCIL FOR COMMUNITY ENRICHMENT. PHASE TWO WAS A WORKSHOP TO HELP COUNCIL MEMBERS IDENTIFY LOCAL CULTURAL NEEDS, DETERMINE LOCAL HUMAN RESOURCES AND PHYSICAL FACILITIES, AND SET UP COUNTY ADVISORY COMMITTEES. IN PHASE THREE, PILOT DEMONSTRATIONS WERE PLANNED. ONE-DAY PILOT DEMONSTRATIONS IN THREE CITIES, PHASE FOUR, CONSISTED OF ART AND LIBRARY EXHIBITS, LECTURES, A PLAY, AND MUSIC DEMONSTRATIONS. IN PHASE FIVE, THE PILOT PROGRAMS WERE EVALUATED BY AN OUTSIDE CONSULTANT WHO RECOMMENDED THAT THE KENTUCKY STATE ART COMMISSION HELP WITH PLANNING AND FINANCING LOCAL ACTIVITIES. THE EXHIBITS COULD BE MORE EDUCATIONAL BY DEMONSTRATING ARTISTS' TECHNIQUES AND CREATING AWARENESS OF UNIQUE LOCAL MATERIALS. LIBRARY AND LECTURE RESOURCE DEMONSTRATIONS SHOULD BE COORDINATED WITH EXHIBITS. THERE SHOULD BE A BALANCE BETWEEN LOCAL AND PROFESSIONAL ARTISTS, AND EXHIBITS OF HAND CRAFTS AND FOLK ART SHOULD BE ADDED. THE YOUTH OF THE COMMUNITY SHOULD BE INVOLVED IN THE ARTS PROGRAMS.
