New NASAA Learning Series: Shifting Policy and Practice

In this time of social, political and economic upheaval, the arts will play a major role in rebuilding stronger and more equitable communities. How can state arts agencies support their constituents as they recover while embracing positive change toward a new future?

NASAA’s new online learning series, Shifting Policy and Practice: Insights and Actions for States, offers provocative perspectives and actionable ideas. Topics include how arts grant makers can make a difference in the new landscape, how state arts agencies can help build bridges within fractured communities, how to make grant making more equitable, empowering older adults, and new tools for values-driven advocacy.

Even though state arts agencies won’t gather in person this year, NASAA knows you still rely on timely information and support from your professional community. In combination with a big expansion of virtual peer group gatherings (many of which are already under way!), this new Shifting Policy and Practice series will keep you informed, inspired, connected and equipped to navigate change.

Because we recognize that your budgets are tight, participation is free for all state arts agency staff and council members and regional arts organizations. Register for the full seven-session series, or for the sessions of your choice. Running from late August through October, Shifting Policy and Practice: Insights and Actions for States offers focused events designed to enrich your work—without overwhelming your calendar.

For more information on virtual professional development offerings available for the rest of 2020, please contact NASAA Learning Services Director Eric Giles.
