Arts Empower Mega Conference Registration Now Open

The Arts Empower Mega Conference is back and reimagined! Join educators, artists, and leaders on Sept. 14 and 15 to network and learn about effective, relevant, and engaging student learning practices. The event kicks off Sept. 14 with a virtual welcome, keynote, and a learning session. Sept. 15 begins virtually in the morning and shifts to in-person events at regional hubs in the late afternoon and evening.  This year's conference is designed with you in mind, and making networking and learning possible even with increased demands on your time and energy. The arts matter, and this annual gathering shows our arts educators that they are important to our school systems and our students' current and future wellbeing.
