AAAE Online Conference Series: 2020 Vision for Student Success

As the field of arts administration continues to grow and evolve, what skills do students of arts management need to succeed on campus and once they join the workforce? How do we adequately prepare the next generation of arts managers for their professional work via pedagogical approaches and other forms of support?

The in-person conference (originally scheduled for May 28-30 at Baruch College, NYC) has been cancelled, but the 2020 conference will proceed virtually as a series of online sessions to be held every week day in May and June.


We fully appreciate the many challenges of this unprecedented and unpredictable time that we are experiencing as a community. AAAE does not want the inability to pay to prohibit your participation in this year's annual conference. We welcome all to participate in the AAAE Conference, regardless of ability to pay. However, we would appreciate support for the financial shortfall its cancellation has caused the organization.
