2019 Conference Planning Meetings

As a national organization, we have the privilege of bringing together arts education leaders from around the country through our annual conference. This February and March we are hosting planning meetings across Texas to connect the Guild to critical issues and opportunities affecting the field regionally and help identify local organizations, thought leaders, and artists to highlight during the program. We are reaching out to those on the ground—the practitioners doing the remarkable, day-to-day work of transforming communities through the arts—to build a collective vision for what this conference can achieve.

At each meeting we will:

  • Provide more information on the National Guild and the Conference for Community Arts Education
  • Create space for networking and collaboartion amongst community arts leaders
  • Generate ideas from the community around how the 2019 Conference can meet the needs of practitioners on the ground

We hope you'll join us!
