The Roundtable Announces Face to Face Registration Subsidies for Unaffiliated NYC-based Teaching Artists

The New York State Council on the Arts is supporting registration subsidies for unaffiliated NYC-based teaching artists for Face to Face 2016.


The only event of its kind in NYC and the largest in the state, Face to Face is a professional development conference for arts administrators, teaching artists, and others interested in the field of arts in education. The conference strives to demonstrate effective teaching and learning strategies for practitioners in the field of arts in education, as well as to provide forums for discussion of other critical issues such as policy and advocacy, assessment, fundraising, and organizational management. The conference encompasses approximately 35 break-out sessions, keynotes, a plenary session, and two networking events.

Face to Face is held over two days in April at The City College of New York, Shepard Hall. Each year, the conference committee selects a theme which informs choices on keynote speakers and the focal point for the conversation. For example, for the April 2015 conference, the keynote address and the plenary explored arts education in the context of community development.
