Arts & Action in New Orleans!

2022 National Conference Young Audiences Arts for Learning
May 11, 2022 |

We are so grateful to everyone who helped make this spring’s YA National Conference such an enriching, spirited, arts-filled, and action-packed gathering. Organized in partnership with our co-hosts at Young Audiences of Louisiana (YALA), Arts & Action: Building Pathways for Partnership and Engagement in Classrooms and Communities was the YA network’s first in-person national conference in over three years, and we sure did make the most out of our time together down in New Orleans, LA.

We are pleased to share with you some photo highlights from the conference and Host Event, as well as recordings of our conference Keynote Address and Plenary Panel Discussion.

Keynote Address: A Season for the Audacious and for the Courageous

Plenary Panel Discussion: Re-centering Equity in Classrooms and Communities

Major thanks go to YALA, Young Audiences Charter Schools, the New Orleans Jazz Museum, NOPSI Hotel, and every one of our speakers, presenters, and attendees! And we couldn’t have done it without generous conference sponsors Hancock Whitney, the National Endowment for the Arts, and Marguerite Moisio.

For our network colleagues unable to join us live, conference sessions have been recorded and will be posted online to YA's learning management system in the coming weeks. Please stay tuned!
