Event description

Description

Join us for our second Cornbread Convocation! This year, we are exploring the dynamic between food and community stories as we create a new experience for Appalachia: a progressive dinner, starting at The Wrigley Taproom, then journeying down Corbin's historic Main Street to experience Perfect Buckets: a one-act play about food, work, and community in the contemporary Appalachian coalfields. Chefs Kristin M Smith from Whitley County, and Joyce Cheng, from Harlan County, are collaborating to create a menu inspired by scenes from the production that connects each dish to a scene in the play.

Perfect Buckets is a new production from Higher Ground, a community performance project in Harlan County, Kentucky. The play comes from interviews collected locally, focuses on social media, potlucks, labor activism, and their effects on community cohesion. Local actors and musicians perform the play. Perfect Buckets was commisioned by the Southern Foodways Alliance and is prodiced by the Southeast Kentucky Community & Technical College Appalachian Program.

Thank you to Second & Main for hosting this exceptional production in Downtown Corbin! Show starts at 8pm.

This event is a fundraiser for the Appalachian Food Summit. Appalachian Food Summit is a group of mountain foodways professionals, scholars and enthusiasts honoring the region's past, celebrating its present and supporting a sustainable future for Appalachia's food and its people.
