LIFE@ Lynchburg: Five Qualities Needed for Successful Arts Delivery in Small Town America

October 4, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Presented by Geoffrey Kershner.

In my time running the Academy Center of the Arts and in launching Small Town/Big Arts, my online resource for small community arts delivery, I believe that there are five key qualities arts organizations need for success in a small town or city. In my talk, I will share examples of these qualities that we use at the Academy as well as examples from successful organizations I have interviewed across America through my Small Town/Big Arts podcast. From the west coast of Alaska to the mountains of Kentucky, there is exciting work being done to create successful communities through the arts.

The University of Lynchburg’s LIFE@Lynchburg program offers not-for-credit learning opportunities for community members age 50 and older.
