The conference will also address other timely topics, including: collaboration with partners at the arts, education and civic level, the importance for implementing and utilizing STEAM practices, creating and growing arts programs that transform communities, and the role of technology in education and creativity.

The national conference is open to everyone, and we encourage our colleagues from other organizations are welcome to submit a proposal. The conference aims to involve diverse groups of participants including leadership, education/programmatic, fund raising/marketing organizational staff; teaching artists; partnering teachers/administrators, and non-profit board members who strive to engage in improving student access to arts and arts integrated learning.
