The town members were buzzing about Appalshop long before I stepped into today. Each local or business owner I talked to said I must stop in and check this place out and I am glad I made the trip. A place created both to preserve the Appalachian heritage and teach the next generation about how to capture such enriching stories, Appalshop is a unique and cultural asset to the community.
I was able to interact with some of the interns who range in ages from 15-20, and I could see a strong passion and enthusiasm for media and the culture. Also, the staff were hospitable and took the time to deliver some great information about the history of The Appalshop. If you love any type of art form, this place does a fabulous job of exploiting the regions cultural assets.
