2019 AFTA Annual Convention
June 13, 2019 - June 16, 2019
For more than 50 years, Americans for the Arts has been convening an annual convention for arts and community leaders to network and discuss strategies for building stronger towns, counties, and cities through the arts.
Art is fundamental to building genuine community. This has always been at the heart of Annual Convention but this year we’re underlining it in bold, with ALL CAPS. From the sessions and speakers to the Twin Cities, the 2019 Annual Convention is all about how the arts build civic engagement, give us the space to investigate our past and future, and create lasting positive change.
Hands-On Sessions and Pre-Conferences
Whether you’re an emerging leader or a veteran of the arts field, Annual Convention offers you practical professional development from arts leaders with in-depth experience. This year, we’re bringing you 30+ workshops, panels, and interactive sessions on community development, arts education, leadership, equity, public art, advocacy, and more.
