The Guild's annual Conference for Community Arts Education brings together leaders and educators from a range of backgrounds to share knowledge, build relationships, and advance a common vision: a nation where arts education is accessible and embraced as essential for human development and healthy communities.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 in-person conference in New York City was canceled
Although we are deeply saddened that we won't be able to gather in-person with our arts education community again for some time, we are inspired to design learning opportunities that respond to the current moment and support the community arts education field as we collectively build our future.
