Lexington Is? A Video Challenge
I want to give a brief plug for a Gaines Center fellow, James Chapman, who is starting a project called the Lexington Video Challenge? What does it entail? See the video below:
Chapman simply asks us to create a video that captures what Lexington is all about. He’s interested in how we “brand” ourselves as a city, what we do, and what images we perpetuate about ourselves. Since this is a jury project for the Gaines Center, I presume that there will be some synthesis and answer to how the humanities can help us think about these challenging questions. If you’re an expert filmmaker, give this challenge a shot.
