Image for Request for Proposals for the 2013 Conference

Apr 10, 2013

We'd like to hear from you as we plan our 76th annual Conference for Community Arts Education, to be presented Oct. 30 - Nov. 2, 2013 in Chicago. Complete the online proposal form by May 22, 2013.

The Conference provides essential networking and professional development opportunities for more than 500 staff, faculty, and board members of 350+ nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and divisions thereof, that provide arts learning opportunities. Funders, policy makers, and other stakeholders also participate. 
By completing the online proposal form, you can . . . 

  1. Submit a full conference session proposal
  2. Suggest a conference topic
  3. Nominate a speaker
  4. Nominate an organization or program for a site visit
  5. Offer to share your expertise as a presenter, panelist, facilitator, or peer mentor, without having to submit a full session proposal.  

Feel free to make suggestions in any or all of these categories. You can save the form at any time and come back later to complete it. We'll accept your submissions until May 22, 2013. We will respond by July 31, if not before.

Issues addressed during the conference will range from program development, collaboration and partnership, diversity and inclusion, evaluation and research, governance, advocacy, leadership, management, development, fundraising, marketing, and recruitment. Sessions are led by expert practitioners, master trainers and researchers who tailor their presentations to meet the specific needs of community arts education providers.
