a map of LouisvilleWe are excited to announce a new Thousand Kites site in Louisville, KY. Kites is a multi-media arts project created to spark a dialogue about the criminal justice system.

The project uses film, theater, radio, and the web
to explore the criminal justice system and bridge racial, cultural, and geographic
divides between stakeholder communities. Our highly
flexible set of tools has been used in communities such as
Richmond, VA and Jackson, MS, Asheville, NC and rural Kentucky.

Get involved. Join our email list for Louisville.
