We know this is a lot to ask, but this is an opportunity for us to pitch Boyd's Station to the judges of A Community Thrives, who will see how funding this one nonprofit could benefit so many.
We know we can do this with your help!
Thanks and we appreciate everyone out there working to make this happen!

MORE about BOYD'S STATION
Boyd’s Station is a “community of collaboration” among diverse artists fostering an environment for creation of real, individual works for the benefit of the artist financially and professionally while bringing the gift of art to the community of Boyd and Harrison County, Kentucky.
BOYD'S STATION signature programs:
SPACE+PLACE (Artist Residence Program)
Artists will be provided space to live and work at NO COST while committing to bringing some type of art community outreach project or event for the benefit of the people of Harrison County, Kentucky during the artist's residence in Boyd.
We have nearly completed the real heavy lifting for SPACE+PLACE and we are wanting to open the doors to providing space for people to come and create.
We have remodeled a number of homes and rebuilt nearly 3,000 square feet of studio space, which was once the Spicer Grocery Store in Boyd. These locations will be provided to creative folks at ZERO cost for housing and the studio space for periods of one to 9 months depending on the space and needs of the artists. Plus, the rural and beautiful environment on land along the South Fork of the Licking River will surely provide limitless creative inspiration.
306.36 VISUAL DOCUMENTARY GRANT
One student documentary photographer will be awarded the Boyd's Station 306.36 Vis Doc Grant annually providing for a twelve week intensive documentary program to photograph the people and culture inside the nearly three hundred square miles of Harrison County, Kentucky.
Weekly commentary and one on one feedback from at least twelve prize-winning visual documentary photographers helping to expand the photographers storytelling skills and develop the tools to sustain a career in documentary photography.
