Cultural Enrichment through Community Action.
Wilson, O. J.
This project was conceived as a technique for helping to eliminate a cultural void in the areas of art, music, and theatre in the service area of Western Kentucky University. To implement this concept, demonstrations were conducted in art, music, theatre, and in library and lecture resources in 16 counties over a four-year period. The attendance of these workshops totaled 5,386 over the four years. Periods of instruction lasted three hours and all workshops met twice monthly. A variety of instructional materials was available throughout the life of the workshops, e.g., six potter's wheels, six electric kilns, and six portable looms in the art workshops and 40 stringed instruments and an adequate supply of sheet music in the music workshops. These workshops were in essence seminars emphasizing free discussion, exchange of ideas, practical methods, skills, and principles and were directed toward adults already employed in the fields. Since the beginning of the project, 34 ongoing programs in art, music, and theatre have been developed in the 16 counties served. (CK)
