The Emerging Arts Leaders Symposium annually welcomes more than 200 aspiring and current art professionals to Washington, DC to hear leaders in the arts world speak about pressing issues, opportunities, and trends in the field. After each symposium, attendees leave feeling inspired and encouraged to both advocate for the arts and take what they have learned back to arts organizations across the country. Take a look at what happened at our past symposiums:
