The Hindman Settlement School
The Hindman Settlement School has always been dedicated to preserving the rich traditions of the past in Eastern Kentucky and all of Appalachia. Through cultural workshops and outreach activities such as Appalachian Family Folk Week, the Appalachian Writers Workshop, artists-in-residence programs, and more, the Settlement also promotes the arts of the region. Participants from throughout the U.S. and around the world come to Knott County each summer to study with well-known and talented artists in many traditional arts disciplines.
