Mtn. Talk Monday: Economic Diversification & Letcher Co. Culture Hub
Host Kelli Haywood discusses small town economics with a group of politically diverse members of the local community – Harry Collins of CANE, Betsy Whaley of MACED, and Ben Fink of Appalshop and the Letcher Co. Culture Hub. What does it take to transition the economy of a small coalfields community? Economic diversity. But, why are some residents wary of diversification of business and the entrepreneurial spirit? Can arts and cultural play a critical role in that economic diversification? The group discusses these topics and much more.
