Speaker: Carlton Turner

What do we need in the quest for building strong leadership in the arts community? How do we think of leadership as a process for all arts participants and not just a program for a selected few? And what lessons can we learn from the teachings of civil rights leader Ella Baker to help us build a leader-full movement within the arts community? These are the questions informing the 2018 conference keynote by Carlton Turner, whose own transformative approach to leadership speaks to several imperatives of the community arts education field, including the need to restore leadership practices that build trust and counter long-term, systemic inequities.
