June 8 - June 11

As the country reemerges and rebuilds from the pandemic, 2021 can be a moment of hope for everyone and a chance to share our art in all the ways we have missed. For the arts and culture sector, it will also be a year of navigating reopening challenges and continuing momentum in the fight for racial equity. The 2021 Annual Convention is our opportunity to gather and reimagine our creative field and communities.

Join us for a week of inspiring keynotes, breakout sessions, and networking opportunities focused on the pressing questions ahead:

  • Centering Equity in Creative Recovery
  • Putting Creative Workers and Cultural Organizations to Work
  • Improving Policies and Practices for the Creative Economy
  • Envisioning Tomorrow’s Creative Engines

This year, we are thrilled to offer a number of scholarship opportunities for those unable to access resources for a paid registration to attend the 2021 Annual Convention. We strongly encourage those that identify as, reside in, and/or directly serve communities of color, rural populations, audiences with disabilities, LGBTQIA+, and/or marginalized audiences to submit a request for a scholarship. Learn more and submit your request here by May 3, 2021.
