Registration is Open! Act Now - Ticketed Events are Selling Out

The National Guild conference is the annual gathering of the nonprofit arts education community, providing learning, networking, and tools to ensure all people have opportunities to maximize their creative potential. Featuring more than four dozen workshops, roundtables, plenary sessions, site visits, and social events—plus full-day preconference institutes—delegates develop new skills, share effective practices, build relationships with colleagues, and return home inspired with new ideas about how to advance their organization and better serve their community. This year’s conference will focus on how arts education can serve as a source of hope, healing, and strength in challenging times.

All arts education stakeholders are encouraged to participate: arts education leaders, funders, policy makers, academics, researchers, and other allies, including those in non-arts sectors (e.g., youth development, health, etc.). Ensuring that all people enjoy access to quality arts learning opportunities throughout their lifespans requires a collective effort.
