           Manhattan Skyline with boat


Young Audiences annual national conference aims to serve 250 participants who work for, support or partner with the 30 YA affiliates across the country.  Participants include the leadership, education/ programmatic, fund raising/marketing organizational staff; board members; teaching artists, and partner teachers/administrators—a diverse group of people 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 the conference theme of Moving Forward:  Arts and Education in the Age of Globalization.  These breakout sessions will address topics that are relevant to our diverse audience and highlight best practices within and outside the Young Audiences Arts for Learning Network, all in an effort to further enhance our work in the classroom (including models in program design and assessment) and out of the classroom (fund and board development, strategic alliances and marketing). The YA network has identified specific topics it hopes to address at the conference and these are listed on the downloadable RFP form below.

Proposals are due by 5:00 p.m. (EST), Friday, January 11, 2013.
