Member Networks

The National Guild supports nine national networks designed to convene members, share resources and strategies, and drive a national conversation around vital topics in arts education. All Networks are led by a Guild Ambassador (or two) and supported by a steering committee composed of Guild members.

Network activities include:

  • In-depth webinars with field experts
  • Online video chats with peer-to-peer discussion and breakout room conversations
  • In-person regional convenings designed for Guild members
  • Gatherings and activities at the Conference for Community Arts Education
  • Articles and interviews archived for members in the Resource Center
