Past Symposiums



Now in our 9th year, the Emerging Arts Leaders Symposium has nearly 200 aspiring and current art professionals come to Washington, DC  year after year to hear leaders in the arts world speak about pressing issues, opprotunites, 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 all around the world. Take a look at what happened at our past symposiums:
