Roadside Theater is leading a national Appalachian-Native American exchange exploring the long-standing role of art in the Appalachian and Native American cultures.

The exchange (a collaboration with the Daniel Boone Wilderness Trail Association, Pro-Art, local visual artists, and the Charles W. Harris Gallery of the Wise County, VA Library) will include a May 20 performance at Natural Tunnel State Park amphitheater; curating and mounting a visual art and pottery exhibit at The Charles W. Harris Gallery (June 1-July 31, 2017) featuring Appalachian, Zuni, Eastern Band of the Cherokee, and Mnicoujou Lakota-Cheyenne River Sioux artists; public exchange story circles featuring Native American and Appalachian artists; and Native cultural exchange events with high school and college students. The project is one part of a 30-year Appalachian-Zuni cultural exchange and collaboration conducted by Roadside Theater.
