2021 Annual Convention
Building an Equitable Arts, Culture, and Creative Economy Together
As we reemerge and rebuild from the pandemic, 2021 can be a moment of hope and a chance to share our art in all the ways we have missed. It will also be a year of navigating reopening challenges and continuing momentum in the fight for racial equity.
The 2021 Annual Convention is our opportunity as a nonprofit arts field to gather and reimagine our creative field and communities.
Join us as we explore how to put creative workers and cultural organizations to work as part of our collective recovery.
Programming & Themes
To make the conference as accessible, safe, equitable, and affordable as possible, Annual Convention will be virtual and coming to a screen near you on June 8-11, 2021.
Stay tuned for inspiring keynotes, breakout sessions, and networking opportunities focused on the pressing questions ahead:
+ Centering Equity in Creative Recovery. What does it look like if we take this moment of flux and disruption in the cultural field as an opportunity to drive actively towards equity?
+ Putting Creative Workers and Cultural Organizations to Work. We’ve got millions of creative workers ready and waiting to get to work as part of the nation’s recovery–—so what are the methods and models that will get them going?
+ Improving Policies and Practices for the Creative Economy. How can we all address all the ways, large and small, that current policies and practices make it hard to thrive in the creative economy, particularly for marginalized groups?
+ Envisioning Tomorrow’s Creative Engines. How do we keep up the amazing, mind-bending reimagining that’s happened while we’ve been locked down and foster the next generation of skills, platforms, tools, and artforms to drive a cultural renaissance?
