The national conference is open to everyone and colleagues from other organizations are welcome to submit a proposal. 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 is 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.
