Landee Bryant, Maiden Alley Cinema Executive Director, was one of 20 delegates chosen from across the country to be part of the National Alliance for Media Arts and Culture's National Leadership Institute. The application process included a personal essay and a description of how the institute would benefit the growth of the organization. As only 20 were chosen from applications across the country, the selection honored Landee's growth as a leader in Paducah and the arts.
She will join representatives from cities such as Albuquerque, Houston, Chicago, Minneapolis, San Francisco, Portland, and more for a five-day intensive intergenerational workshop that is designed to encourage and sustain visionary leadership.
To further leadership development and field building in the arts, NAMAC entered into a partnership with The Learning Commons in 1999 to develop and present intensive, residential leadership institutes. After more than a decade of successfully presenting institutes for specific subsectors (i.e. media arts or visual arts), the 2012 NAMAC Leadership Institute was the first to serve leaders across disciplines including media arts, visual arts, theater, and photography.
