The Conference for Community Arts Education addresses the specific needs of nonprofit arts education organizations and provides the support they need to expand equitable access to arts learning opportunities in their communities.

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

The program will include a wide range of events: full-day pre-conference training institutes, roundtables, workshops, working meetings, networking events, site visits, plenary sessions, consultations, panel presentations, and program showcases designed to help you lead effectively, increase participation and impact, raise money, sustain key programs, and increase access to arts education for all.

Potential topics include:

  • Addressing Civic Priorities through Cross-Sector Collaboration
  • Advocacy
  • Arts Education and Mental Health
  • Arts Education and Social Justice
  • Board Development
  • DIY Movement/Innovation
  • Documenting and Communicating Impact
  • Equity and Inclusion
  • Leadership Development
  • Organizational Sustainability and Growth
  • Partnering with K-12 Education
  • Parent and Family Engagement
  • Student Recruitment and Retention
  • Teaching Artist Development and Pathways
