We have spent countless hours with some of the best minds in academia and the for-profit world exploring ideas and developing educational programs for arts and culture organizations. Imagine if you had an hour with one of these experts.
Talk with an Expert gives you that opportunity. These small group videoconferences allow you to ask questions and engage directly with an expert. During the one-hour live discussion, video and audio, text chat, and other features ensure a robust two-way discussion. Each live discussion is anchored by a short recording in which the expert shares concepts, frameworks and strategies relating to a critical organizational issue which your team will have unlimited online access to prior to the event.
Participation is limited to a small group – only 12 organizations– to allow for the highest level of interaction. We encourage team participation and have put together some suggestions for how to use these sessions for group learning. In addition to the recorded content you will view in advance of the conversation, the live discussion will also be recorded and made available to participants. Following the event you and your participating colleagues will also have access to the NAS staff to continue exploring your questions through the Help Desk.
