Their efforts have kindled fires, aroused imaginations, and rallied the troops culminating in real transformational change. No matter the form of their cultural activism, these movers and shakers have been viewed as authentic, reliable, and trustworthy shepherds. Yet, artists have been overlooked or given too little attention in the literature on leadership.
