Open Call: Workshop Session RFPs for the 2014 Young Audiences National Conference in San Diego, April 24-26

Young Audiences Arts for Learning is pleased to announce our 2014 Annual National Conference in San Diego. The Conference will be held on April 24-26 at the US Grant Hotel in the heart of downtown San Diego. It will address numerous themes, among them are: developing STEAM programs and collaboratives; partnering strategies with school districts and the community; creating collaborative relationships with teachers; measuring genuine impact on student learners, their families, and their communities; grass-roots advocacy in both arts education; and building alliances with parents and their organizations.
Participants will include Young Audiences and arts education professionals from around the country and every role will be represented from leadership staff and board members to teaching artists and partner teachers. This diverse group of people are engaged in improving student access to arts and arts integrated learning. In addition to plenary sessions that share the latest research and the impact of the arts and education, the conference will include a variety of break out sessions that will address numerous themes. These breakout sessions will address topics that are relevant to our diverse audience and highlight best practices in the arts-in-education field. 
We are currently accepting proposals for the breakout sessions and we are looking for engaging topics that address our diverse audience and highlight best practices within and outside the Young Audiences Arts for Learning Network. Proposals are due by 5:00 p.m. (EST), Monday, January 20, 2014.
