Flashes of Inspiration

NASAA is looking for
the best and brightest state arts agency initiatives to showcase during an
all-new Flashes of Inspiration session this October at Assembly 2012, and we want you to participate!
About Flashes of Inspiration
Similar in spirit to
the many PechaKuchaTM and IgniteTM events around the world, NASAA's
Flashes of Inspiration is a 90-minute session that includes an array of
fast-paced and highly visual presentations designed to inform and inspire in
only 5 minutes apiece.
Inspiration made its debut at Assembly 2010 in Austin. The 10 presentations featured there were met with
riotous applause and appreciation for the good ideas, creativity, candor and
humor that everyone shared.
of Inspiration returns this year at Assembly 2012 on the afternoon of Friday,
Representatives from each state present their agency's bright idea in exactly
five minutes (strict time limits apply). Time is provided for group networking
How You Can Participate
If you have an
innovative program or successful initiative that you would like considered for
Flashes of Inspiration 2012, fill out our very short submission form telling us about your idea. Please
complete your form by July 3.
We are especially
interested in presentations that feature creative approaches to place making,
advocacy, arts education, reaching underserved communities, unusual
partnerships or diversifying participation in the arts. However, if you have an
exciting activity focusing on a different topic, don't hesitate—all
entries are welcome. Also, no activity is "too small" to count.
Sometimes great things come in little packages!

will be selected to be shared on-site at the Assembly
