Reaching Beyond Tradition invites the public to engage with Southeastern basket makers and tradition-keepers in conversation about the history, importance, and continuing evolution of this regional art form. Attendees will learn their unique stories and the roles that they play in maintaining traditions, as well as have chances to compare Kentucky’s unique tradition to those found in other parts of the Southeast, making connections that are crucial to understanding the contributions of basket making to Kentucky culture while also connecting us to the broader context of a Southeastern and global art form.

The program will include four sessions, held during the afternoon and evening hours. Each session will feature a narrative stage, with discussions guided by a facilitator (5-10 prepared questions) with room for audience questions.
