Facing Nashville

District 17, Woodbine and South Nashville

Creative writers Scott Lyon and Tayla Burn were awarded $4,000 for “Facing Nashville.” “Facing Nashville” engages community members who are living in Nashville due to forced migration—whether due to armed conflict, famine, or persecution in their native countries—in the art and craft of digital storytelling. One by one a series of modules will be created that combine text, photographs, video, and sound, housed in an interactive web space, in order to amplify and empower individual voices from these underserved, marginalized communities, which will be accessible and archived indefinitely online.
