is a term coined in the Spring of 2011 to denote a group of people who assemble suddenly or with minimal calendar coordination for the purpose of doing something together. Flash Fellowships are organized via telecommunications, social media, or viral emails. The term is generally not applied to events and performances organized for the purposes of commercial advertisement, publicity stunts, that involve public relation firms, or paid professionals.
Flash Fellowship might be breakfast at Russell’s on Saturday morning, or a movie at the Riverview on Sunday, or happy hour on Neal and Sarah’s deck on Friday. Send an email to Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org. She’ll send a mass email to those that are interested and then when you have an event you want to invite people to, simply “reply all” with all of the details.
