In Hindman, KY, the Appalachian Artisan Center will expand its work with youth and adults to address the community’s opioid epidemic through workforce programs in traditional craft and music. These programs will also contribute to an increase in economic opportunity through the creation of jobs to meet an increasing demand for handcrafted instruments in the region.

This project is partnering with a rare luthiery studio in Hindman as one of several education and workforce partners.
