Face to Face Conference


For more than 25 years, the Face to Face conference has enriched the arts education community by providing a space to share innovations and best practices. Sessions are presented by members of the field and curated by a panel of our peers with the expressed goal of expanding our understanding of and desire to provide the best possible arts experience to New Yorkers of all ages, in all boroughs.

The conference engages attendees in hands-on art making sessions in addition to discussions about vital issues that affect the field at large including research, assessment; evaluation; advocacy; and the need for equity, diversity, inclusion, and social justice within our schools and our organizations.
