I think, therefore I LISTEN

I think, therefore I LISTEN

Savannah Barrett (’08, Humanities) is an urban resident with a rural heart. Moving to Louisville from Grayson Springs, Kentucky to attend UofL, she left behind her home but kept a commitment to rural places and people alive in her work and life. Savannah parlayed a B.A. in Humanities and an M.S. in arts administration to become Director of Programs for Art of the Rural. A national organization with a field office in Kentucky, Art of the Rural collaborates with a diverse range of partners to help build the field of the rural arts, create new narratives on rural culture and community, and contribute to the emerging rural arts and culture movement. In this Q&A, we learn about the people and places that inspire Savannah, and where to find the best swimming holes in the state.

In this Q&A, we learn how the patriarchy has persisted, and what we can all do to help alleviate poverty.
