Continuing the momentum for implementation of the 2020 Action Agenda for Advancing the Arts in Education, this annual event is an opportunity for national and state-level leaders to roll-up their sleeves and focus on the implications of pressing federal and state education issues for the arts in education.

The Arts Education Partnership, along with Americans for the Arts and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, will welcome more than 100 national and state leaders from the arts, business, cultural, education, philanthropic and public sectors for a daylong conversation about the intersection between the arts and education policy. In addition to learning from engaging keynote and plenary presentations on the education landscape, participants will gain insights from experts through in-depth workshops on tools and strategies for expanding access to and participation in the arts in their own states.

AEP encourages anyone planning to attend the 2017 AEP Spring State Policy Symposium to book their hotel as early as spring is typically a busy time in D.C., and hotels fill up fast. Join the conversation online with #AEPSPS17


This event is made possible in part through an interagency agreement between the U.S. Department of Education and the National Endowment for the Arts.
