AFTA National Convention June 2017 in SF


For the 2017 Annual Convention, Americans for the Arts and our members are heading to San Francisco, June 16-18, to explore this iconic arts destination and to discuss the pressing issues of equity, accessibility, and community building.

This year’s Annual Convention will explore the role of the arts in creating and sustaining healthy, vibrant, equitable communities. Talks will revolve around five core themes:

Engaging Equity: How do we learn and lead in pursuing equity inside and outside the arts?
Inspiring Activation: How can we support activist and experimental spirit in the arts?
Embracing Reinvention: How can we be proactive in moments of transformation?
Celebrating Optimism: How can we raise up the creativity and hope within our communities?
Building Skills: What are the primary skills needed for individuals to succeed in the arts today?
