Image for Submit a Session Proposal for the 2015 Conference

Apr 10, 2015

We are currently accepting session proposals for the 2015 Conference for Community Arts Education (November 11 - 14, Philadelphia, PA). The deadline to submit is April 30, 5:00PM ET. Click here to access the guidelines and submission form. We also encourage you to watch the recording of our recent how-to webinar, Conference Proposals Demystified: How to Build a Compelling Session.

The Conference 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. This year's conference will focus on creating a more favorable environment for our work through collaborations within and beyond the arts sector, strategic partnerships, research, leadership development, public will building, and other areas.

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 more. We will prioritize sessions in which participants work together to advance understanding and break new ground for the field.
Conference delegates represent nonprofit arts education organizations across the country, including arts and cultural centers, community arts schools, preparatory programs, performing arts companies, youth serving organizations (e.g., Boys and Girls Clubs of America), museums, and other agencies. Some organizations provide classes and lessons in their own facilities, others collaborate with senior centers, hospitals, public schools, and other agencies to increase access to arts education. Many do both.
