For the Knox family, food has been central to their livelihoods for over 3 generations. Learn about Jesse Knox’s experience as a professional chef, told by his daughter, Sue and grandson, Kaylen in this short video.
This glimpse into the traditions of the multi-generational culinary traditions of Elmira’s Knox family was produced by Christa Heyward of Elmira Center for Cultural Advancement and Will Wickham through The ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes’ Community Documentation Workshop.
The Community Documentation Workshop, made possible through a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, began in 2021 as an 8-part workshop series designed to teach residents how to gather and share stories in ways that unify our diverse region, advance cultural equity, and reflect the dignity and resilience of the people within our community.
As our friends, collaborators, and community partners complete their documentaries, The ARTS Council is proud to amplify their stories.
