STEPPING INTO THE FUTURE

This month is a major milestone for The Kentucky Center, as we take a huge step into the future. As you’ve surely seen, on July 23rd Old Forester’s Paristown Hall opens its doors with an amazing opening night celebration event. This new 2,000 person, standing room venue located in Louisville’s Paristown neighborhood is a historic turning point for this organization and our region. Continuing The Center’s mission to build lifelong relationships with the arts, Old Forester’s Paristown Hall provides a new entertainment destination for national touring bands that have never played in Louisville before, as well as a home for collaborative projects, new works and nontraditional performance experiences by the region’s arts and cultural community. Expanding our ability to attract new artists, new visitors and new energy. The opening of Old Forester’s Paristown Hall is part of the grander vision of The Kentucky Center, to create unique spaces and meaningful experiences that further human connections. Between The Kentucky Center, the Brown Theatre and Old Forester’s Paristown Hall, we now have performance spaces to suit every art form, every artist and every artistic vision. We thank you for joining us this evening and look forward to experiencing these exciting new ventures together.

The Air National Guard Band of the

Air National Bands are the active duty bands’ counterpart in the Air National 6

Guard Band. Headquartered in Knoxville, TN, the Air National Guard Band of the South is the official musical ambassador for the Tennessee Air National Guard. The Band of the South’s mission is two-fold: first, to enhance and lift the morale and espirit de corps of our fellow Airmen stationed either in the United States or abroad; second, to increase the public’s understanding of the importance of air power, the missions and programs of the Air Force and Air National Guard and the bravery, sacrifice and dedication of Airmen across the globe. While performing these missions, members of the Band of the South have performed in almost every state in the union as

Finis “KY” White

Hip-hop as a genre has faced constant

adversity since it began breaking through to the mainstream. Hip-hop sound engineer and Kentucky native Finis “KY” White can certainly say the same for his own life. His story is one of perseverance, with few models of success or music industry resources where he grew up, yet White still managed to turn homelessness and hopelessness into a multi-platinum

career, mixing and engineering records for the likes of Drake, Lil Wayne, and Nicki Minaj, just to name a few. Known these days in Atlanta as “the engineer from Kentucky,” or “KY” for short, White opened Bass Recording Studios in 2016. Since then, he has continued to book top-tier talent, garnered lucrative endorsement deals and, most importantly, continued to inspire young entrepreneurs with his motto, #HardWorkPaysOff.

ABOUT THE HOST: SEAN CANNON

Sean Cannon

With a bluegrass background and knack for extracting stories, Sean Cannon, will join “KY” and delve into how this entrepreneur rose to the top of the hip-hop world. Host and producer of The Guestlist podcast, Cannon first made a name for himself on Louisville airwaves anchoring WFPK’s After Dark. Like White, Cannon grew up in an

impoverished community in Eastern Kentucky but found both solace and direction in life through his love of music. His podcast has featured a wide range of notables like John Carpenter, Wyclef Jean, and Grandmaster Flash.

media, allowing him to soak up the wealth of influences that still inform his work to this day. The freedom to explore the world in his imagination coupled with the tenacity he learned from the hard-working farmers around him set Moore up for achieving that dream.

Graduating from Harrison County High School in 1997, Tony went on to nearly complete his BFA in Drawing from the University of Louisville’s Hite Art Institute before abandoning his studies to pursue a career illustrating comics.

Best known for his work on The Walking Dead, Moore also co-created the books The Exterminators and Fear Agent, and has since lent his hand to bombastic runs on Marvel’s Ghost Rider, The Punisher, Venom, and Deadpool. He has drawn covers for countless others.

“Best known for his work on The Walking Dead, Moore also co-created the books The Exterminators and Fear Agent, and has since lent his hand to bombastic runs on Marvel’s Ghost Rider, The Punisher, Venom, and Deadpool.” He has been twice nominated for the comics industry’s prestigious Eisner Award. Of all the honors he has received throughout his sterling career, perhaps the most precious was being commissioned by Governor Steve Beshear as a Kentucky Colonel, following in the footsteps of his grandfather. Though his work has carried him around the world, he prefers to spend his days quietly on his farm in Cynthiana with his wife, daughter, and dogs.

K

entucky to the World, a Louisvillebased non-profit, is dedicated to enhancing the intellectual reputation of the state, its people, and its assets through a unique combination of live events and video outreach.

We do this through our live Republic Bank Foundation Speaker Series, which are featured and streamed on KET, as well as The New Narrative (TNN) program, which distributes videos online and through our community partners.

BACKGROUND Founded in 2012, Kentucky to the World is unique in its singular focus on Kentucky’s intellectual reputation.

Three live speaker programs a year for general audiences are held with Republic Bank Foundation as the 14

Preceding each event is a specially designed program for more than 75 local high school students including an intimate briefing with speakers, supported by title sponsor Lifetime Wealth Strategies.

“Kentucky to the World is a gift to us all. It expands our story; publishing new headlines and shaping the new narrative of this place we call home. Mining the stories and people that shape our communities, KTW puts our narrative center state for Louisville, the Commonwealth, and the world to celebrate.” - Heather Weston Bell, Senior VP Kentucky Center

KENTUCKY: THE NEW NARRATIVE

COMMUNITY PARTNERS

The New Narrative (TNN) is a Kentucky to the World (KTW) initiative that will share many more stories of men and women who are passionate about their Kentucky ties and whose talents are having an impact around the world. TNN captures video conversations about how their Kentucky roots have enabled these individual’s success. The format— brief documentary-style videos presented at our Community Partners and online— greatly expands KTW’s ability to bring these stories to an even broader and more diverse audience than those who are able to attend KTW live events. When we get more of these amazing stories out into the state and beyond, we will increase by thousands the number of people who will value Kentucky as a rich source of intellectual vitality and creativity. KTW then tells a new story of Kentucky’s intellectual and cultural accomplishments on the world stage. KTW wants Kentucky’s reputation to be driven by the impact of the extraordinary people with ties to Kentucky, rather than by the old stereotypes.

Our network of partners currently include the Frazier History Museum, Kentucky Science Center, the Louisville Omni Hotel, Louisville Tourism, Metro Parks & Recreation Community Centers, Muhammad Ali Center, and The Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts.

BECOME A FRIEND TO KENTUCKY TO THE WORLD Whether you’re a business person concerned about recruitment and retention of world-class talent, a citizen tired of Kentucky too often getting a bad rap, a student wondering how to grab onto the dreams you have for the future, or someone who’s just not sure if Kentucky and Kentuckians have what it takes to compete on the world stage— this is your organization. Donating to Kentucky to the World is easy! Make your tax-deductible gift by donating today at kentuckytotheworld.org, or connect with us to learn more by calling 502-897-3819.
