Written by : Sara Lamb Welcome back to Week 5 of our 45 Days of Giving! See Days 21 – 25 below!  In the fall of 2018, Nossi College of Art is celebrating our 45th anniversary, and we decided to do 45 acts of creative kindness for local classrooms, non-profits, church groups. Nashville and the surrounding communities have been supportive of Nossi College and the impact we wanted to make on this area, so in return, we wanted to feature 45 acts of thankfulness. If you haven’t already, check out our previous blog for Week 4 to get all the action! We are so excited to share the fun we had shopping, donating, creating and celebrating within the wonderful community that has supported us during our 45-year creative journey.   Day 21: AtoZ Exchange Day 21’s feature is very close to us because it is an example of the great talent our campus fosters. AtoZ Exchange is a weekly, collaborative, conversational podcast where creative, cultural and political topics are discussed. Video & Film Grads, Zakk Beaty and Amanda York are the creators of AtoZ and record their podcasts right here on Nossi’s campus!   To show our support, we are helping these Nashville filmmakers by sponsoring their startup costs and continuing to provide a workspace to broadcast their interesting, eclectic topics. Their podcast goal is inclusive and beautiful. “Promote listening and learning through discussion. It’s not about debating if certain ideas are better or worse, but instead, forming healthier and more…
