In May of 2003, an exhibit featuring 240 Harlan County photographers opened in Harlan. The exhibit was the result of the work of community college PACT PROJECT: classes, elementary and secondary schools, the SECC adult education program and other community groups. PHOTOGRAPHY The project will continue in other parts of the county in 2003 and 2004. Photographers Malcolm Wilson and Jeff Whetstone and Whetstone's photography students at the University of North Carolina will conduct a second week of residency work during the spring of 2004. During July 2003, Southeast Community College art professor Joe Scopa conducted tile mosaic workshops at the Cawood Ledford Boys and Girls Club and Comprehensive Care in Benham. Scopa will also offer courses in tile mosaic during the fall with the support of the Appalachian Program. The workshops are part of an effort to expose as many people in the county as to the artistic possibilities of tile mosaic, so that this fall we can have a community discussion PACT PROJECT” about creating public art installations that incorporate tile. An exhibit of the summer 2003 work will be on display in the Godbey Appalachian Center Gallery. M OSAI C During the fall, we hope to undertake a community planning process to design and construct large public artworks incorporating tile mosaic for permanent installation in Harlan County. During the spring of 2004, Joyce Ogden, and her public art students at Spalding University in Louisville will work with SECC art professor Joe Scopa and local artists to conduct tile mosaic workshops around Harlan County. The workshops will mark the second of a three-year project intended to result in large, permanent, public works of art designed and produced by local people in collaboration with our visiting artists from Louisville. Beginning in the summer of 2003, local people will be working with Jo Carson, a writer and performer living in Johnson City, Tennessee, to gather stories for use in a play intended for performance in local communities with a local cast. Carpetbag Theater from Knoxville, Tennessee will help produce and direct the play. Carpetbag develops its work through community residencies. Carson and members of Carpetbag will also work with Alessandro Portelli, an Italian oral historian who has worked in Harlan for decades, to design an interview process for collecting stories throughout the county. Carson and Carpetbag Theater members will work with SECC staff member Theresa Osborne to train community members to conduct story circles in small groups throughout the county. Carpetbag Theater members will hold a series of workshops designed to help participating community members move from story gathering to performance. In July 2003, community residents met with Alessandro Portelli to discuss story gathering and the theater project associated with Harlan County PACT. PACT PROJECT: Alessandro Portelli has been coming to Harlan County since the 1970s. He has interviewed over a hundred Harlan Countians in that time. He has published THEATER a great deal of this material, and has used his work in Harlan County as a jumping-off place for writing about the nature and uses of oral history. Sandro teaches American Studies in Rome. During the fall of 2003, storygathering work will take place in Appalachian Studies, English, and Sociology classes at Southeast Community College. PACT project staff will also work with the Cawood Ledford Boys & Girls Club in Loyall and Cumberland High School on story gathering projects related to the play. th On Friday September 12 and Saturday September 13th the Appalachian Program will conduct a workshop retreat the Pine Mountain Settlement School. Friday focused on PACT planning and training listener/interviewer/story gatherers for the play and listening project. In February 2004, Carpetbag Theater will perform one of its own pieces in Harlan County. During Fall 2003 and Spring 2004, Jo Carson will work with community members to polish and refine her scriptwriting, moving towards a finished script.
