Incredible Experience

Last year, almost 50 administrators and educational leaders attended our inaugural conference, which included 28 schools from 17 districts. In our survey after the event, 100% of respondents agreed that:

  • The opportunity to network with others was beneficial.
  • The overall experience was useful and worth my time.
  • I would attend this event in the future.

Here’s what administrators said about their experience:

“I took 4 pages of notes! I am re-energized. Loved this day so much! Thank you for including me.” – Participant


“I loved the opportunity to hear how other principals facilitated and planned their school’s arts journey. The slow and steady yearly breakdown was wonderful!” – Participant


“Great conference; time well spent! It’s so great to be able to collaborate with other principals who are doing this amazing work.” – Participant

You don’t want to miss this spectacular event. Arts in education leaders will be in attendance to network and support principals in attendance.
