History Alive! project

North Nashville in Salemtown, Buchanan Station, Buena Vista, and Bordeaux in Districts 1 and 19

Sweetbud Productions and Connye Florance has been awarded $4000 to collaborate with North Nashville’s historic Howard, UCC (established 1869), 50 Forward Bordeaux and Salemtown Board Company (new business) to create and stage public performances of stories in a ‘Reader’s Theater' type format. Script and final presentation materials will be developed from personal interviews with elders of Howard UCC, participating members at 50 Forward, Bordeaux and with youth from the burgeoning skateboard community, Salemtown. This project is developed to capture a native voice of a community where many of its members are passing away and with that, so are their memories and stories.
