Do you have a favorite story? Of course you do because that’s how we make friends and stay connected. I spent all day yesterday talking about the power of storytelling at the 12th Annual Nonprofit Leadership Conference.  Here at the Fund for the Arts we have a powerful story to tell; one that we feel both enriches and strengthens this community.  But truly it’s not our story at all. It’s the story of everyone around us. Join me for a walk down memory lane in the video below and register to win 2 tickets to see the Louisville Orchestra’s orKIDStra Spooktacular on October 20th by sharing your favorite birthday stories on our Facebook page.
