The Louisville Story Program strengthens community by amplifying unheard voices and untold stories. We partner closely with overlooked Louisville residents by providing extensive writing and oral history workshops and intensive editorial support, culminating in professionally-designed documentary books, exhibits, and radio programs in which our authors tell the stories of their lives and communities in their own words. We then work to ensure the broadest possible audience for their work, and to leverage their achievements into additional opportunities for them.
The artist’s book, Available Light: Louisville Through the Lens of Bud Dorsey, will be available for purchase at the venue:
