Announcing the 60th Anniversary Young Audiences Arts for Learning National Conference

As we here in New York brace for blistering, cold weather, we’re comforted by the excitement that spring promises. This April, join Young Audiences and arts education professionals from around the country at the Young Audiences Arts for Learning 60th Anniversary National Conference – a three day symposium on the current state of arts and education. The conference begins on Thursday, April 25 and concludes on Saturday, April 27, 2013 at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City.

The 60th Anniversary National Conference will include engaging peer-to-peer discussions regarding current issues and trends in arts in education, breakout sessions that present unrivaled professional development opportunities, and visit one of Young Audiences’ affiliate programs in New York City, New Jersey, or Connecticut.

We are proud to announce keynote speakers, Richard Kessler, Dean, Mannes College, The New School of Music; Ayanna Hudson, Art Education Director, National Endowment for the Arts; and Ben Cameron, Program Director for the Arts at the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.

Next week, we will be opening up registration on Friday, February 1st, 2013.

Stay Warm,

Marcus Romero
