Appalshop, Inc. (Whitesburg, KY 41858-0743)
Caroline Rubens (Project Director: May 2021 to present)
Preserving and Improving Access to Appalshop's Humanities Collections

Enhancing public access to archival collections about the history and culture of the Appalachian region through retaining and hiring staff members.

As the organization works to resume humanities programming, we are seeking capacity support to preserve and improve access to our archival collections illuminating the history and culture of the Appalachian region. Funds will go towards the digitization of collections that are in urgent need of preservation measures including photonegative collections spanning 1935 to 1991 and moving image materials dating to the 1970s. This project will also improve access to our Roadside Theater collection that includes documentation of late-20th century grassroots theater movements in the U.S.
