RFK in EKY is made possible by the wide range of organizational and funding supporters who have given generously to secure and enact its goals.
RFK in EKY is a project at Appalshop, a remarkable media and cultural center in Whitesburg, Kentucky, created through Office of Economic Opportunity funding in 1969 as part of the "war on poverty."
RFK in EKY was first conceived at the American Festival Project's 2000 Artist and Community Gathering.
The American Festival Project contributed critical development and organizational support to RFK in EKY, and its 2004 Art and Democracy Gathering will be held September 11 and 12 in Whitesburg, Kentucky.
Funding for RFK in EKY has come from the following sources:
The Rockefeller Foundation's MAP and PACT Programs
The Association of Performing Arts Presenters' Arts Partners Program
The Kentucky Arts Council, a state agency in the Commerce Cabinet,
with support from the National Endowment for the Arts
The Nathan Cummings Foundation
The National Performance Network's Community Residency Fund
The Appalshop Education and Production Fund
