"The hope dealt at the Community Arts Education Conference was powerful and contagious. I am holding onto it, planting the conference memories into my brain, body, and spirit. When I need hope, I know where to find it."

"As an ambassador of the Guild, I feel shaken and awakened by all of these moments [at the Conference]. They communicate the rumblings of a movement. It’s a movement that resists the fear that permeates our current national conversation, by calling for a future that involves a more collaborative, intergenerational approach to leadership."

- Indi McCasey, Educator and National Guild Ambassador
