Americans for the Arts 2015 Convention: Propose Ideas and Speakers

We want to hear what you think are the topics, concepts, theories, practices—the things that are going to power and empower positive community change through the arts in 2015. We will then take those ideas and synthesize them into about 30 main conference breakout sessions and another 15 or so preconference breakouts that hopefully represent the full breadth of what is concerning and exciting advocates today!

This year, we are also encouraging you to identify some people who you think might be impactful in discussing the ideas you propose. While we curate all of our sessions, and so can’t promise that any of your suggested people will end up in the final breakout, we found your suggestions extremely helpful last year, and about 25% of all of last year’s panelists came out of this exact process.

The deadline for submitting ideas and suggesting speakers is October 20, 2014.
