Kentucky Moments: Four arts leaders tell their stories
In March 2015, From the Top alumni Anna DeLoi, Matt Dykeman, Ryan Shannon, and Chad Lilley participated in a week-long From the Top arts leadership residency in southeastern Kentucky where they explored how music can be used as a central tool for leadership and community building.
In response to the question “What am I learning about myself as an artist and a leader?”, Anna, Matt, Ryan, and Chad were asked to choose one moment, example, or anecdote that was emblematic of their experiences. Each arts leader wrote and produced a 2-3 minute story capturing their individual learning, with the hope of also empowering and inspiring others.
This residency was generously funded by the William R. Kenan, Jr. Charitable Trust.
