Humans of Kent County

RiverArts Builds Community Through Arts

Humans of Kent County

Welcome to the Humans of Kent County Project, a year-long celebration of the wonderful humanity in our little corner of the Eastern Shore of Maryland.  Our hope is to get as many people as possible involved in documenting the great people that live, work and visit Kent County.

All are welcome to participate. We want to see all of our community represented and are looking for folks to help us collect stories and images from all corners of our county using your smart phones, cameras, recorders or whatever you have available. You don’t have to be a photographer or an oral historian. You do need to have an interest in people and their stories. We recommend going out in teams of two — one person to interview and one person to photograph but one person can assume both roles.

Stories from all participants are featured online on our Humans of Kent County tumblr web page. Photographs and quotes can be submitted by emailing your photo, story and consent form to Lani Seikaly at laniseikaly@me.com.  Each submission should consist of a photograph, a story or quote and a signed release form so we can use their image and words on our web page and in our exhibitions.  The Chestertown SPY features selected photos and stories from our Humans of Kent County web page each week.

Want to participate or learn more?  You can also schedule a group or individual orientation by contacting Lani Seikaly at laniseikaly@me.com.
