Flashes of Inspiration 2012: Call for Entries

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.

Flashes of 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.

Flashes of Inspiration returns this year at Assembly 2012 on the afternoon of Friday, October 5. Representatives from each state present their agency's bright idea in exactly five minutes (strict time limits apply). Time is provided for group networking and Q&A.

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!

Any state arts agency staff member or council member is eligible to submit a proposal. Regional arts organizations also are encouraged to apply. A maximum of 10 submissions will be selected to be shared on-site at the Assembly 2012 conference in Washington, D.C.

If you have any questions, please contact NASAA Learning Services Manager Eric Giles, 202-347-6352 x117. We look forward to receiving your proposal!
