EALS at AU presents the 17th Annual Emerging Arts Leaders Symposium

American University's Emerging Arts Leaders (EALS) presents their 17th annual 2024 Symposium: Arts and... Held each Spring at the Katzen Arts Center in Washington DC, the symposium aims to educate, empower and entertain rising and established leaders in the arts as we gather together in a community of learning. The Symposium will be held on Saturday, March 23, 2024, and we hope you will save-the-date.


Art is the way in which we perceive our world and exists in collaboration with our everyday lives. It encompasses all our emotions, decisions, questions, and perceptions. Arts and… aims to pull back the curtain to expose its interdisciplinary nature. Now more than ever, in an age of diminishing arts recognition, the versatility of the arts needs to be explored and discussed. Join a community of arts leaders as we explore art in different spaces and participate in a collaborative effort to promote the arts for everyone.


At the 17th Annual Emerging Arts Leaders Symposium, you can expect: 


  • An inspiring keynote speaker to frame the day’s focus.

  • Valuable and actionable panel conversations with experienced arts leaders, representing multiple arts disciplines and a range of issues facing the sector.

  • Networking opportunities to engage and develop new connections with arts professionals. 

  • A digital EALS program, which will be updated regularly with schedule announcements and provide an opportunity for continued networking.
