Kentucky: The New Narrative (TNN) will bring inspiring stories from Kentucky to the world through a series of engaging, documentary-style videos featuring individuals who are passionate about their Kentucky ties and how Kentucky was vital to their success. Capitalizing on the rise in popularity of digital video content, The New Narrative will greatly expand our ability to reach many more people than just those who can attend our live events.
In addition to the wider audience we will reach online, stories in The New Narrative are able to be viewed in person by individuals exploring Louisville thanks to a growing list of Community Partners who support our mission. Our network of partners currently includes the Frazier History Museum, Kentucky Science Center, Omni Louisville Hotel, Louisville Tourism, Louisville Metro Parks and Recreation Community Centers, Muhammad Ali Center, and The Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts. Find out more about our Community Partners here.
We want Kentucky’s reputation to be shaped by the impact of the extraordinary people with Kentucky ties rather than by stereotypes. Getting more of these amazing stories out into the state and beyond will increase by thousands the number of people who see Kentucky as a rich source of intellectual vitality and creativity. For a taste of what we mean, watch a Nobel Laureate, Dr. Phillip A. Sharp; The President of Aston Martin, Laura Schwab; and the Chairman of DDB, Chuck Brymer – who were all raised and educated in Kentucky – set The New Narrative in the videos below.
