Annual Convention 2022: How to Submit Session Proposals and Details About Coming Changes

 

For the first time since 2019, the Americans for the Arts Annual Convention will return to an in-person event in 2022. Americans for the Arts will offer a simplified, shorter, and more accessible Annual Convention, paired with a virtual component for those unable to travel. The 2022 Annual Convention is planned to take place in May or June 2022 in Washington, D.C. Final dates and locations to be announced soon.

With the event seemingly just around the corner, we wanted to (1) announce the opening of a revised session and roundtable proposal submission process and (2) detail some of the ways we are working to improve the planning process, reduce barriers to attendance, and provide spaces for safe connection and dialogue.

SESSION AND ROUNDTABLE SUBMISSION PROCESS, OPEN TO ALL (November 8 – December 8, 2021)

Sessions! We’ve crafted a simplified session proposal process, which is open from November 8 – December 8, 2021. Anyone can submit a proposal, regardless of membership status with Americans for the Arts! All accepted session presenters will receive a complimentary registration and an honorarium of $200 for their labor.

Roundtables! To maximize opportunity for presenters, we’re also planning to host roundtable presentation sessions. These one-presenter opportunities to present to three small groups, 20 minutes at a time, are a great way to showcase a project, raise a question, highlight new research, or gather colleague input.

Subject areas we’re seeking proposals around include: advocacy and policy, arts education, arts-based community development, creative economy and creative workforce, cultural and racial equity, fundraising and grantmaking, partnerships and collaborations, public art and civic design, research and evaluation, and social impact.

CLICK HERE TO SUBMIT A PROPOSAL or learn more about the process! Open until December 8, 2021.
