Dive into Conference Programming

The Arts Midwest Conference is just around the corner! Get a glimpse into our newly announced programming, and make sure to register. This year we’re using new terms to give you an idea of the different ways we’ll engage online:

  • Conversations are facilitated, interactive discussions with plenty of opportunities for attendee participation and peer-to-peer learning.
  • Workshops are moderated panel discussions featuring peer leaders and field experts.
  • Explorations are keynote discussions with field leaders exploring the most pressing questions for our field today and into the future.

Meet our Exploration Speakers

We’re excited to announce this year’s closing keynote Exploration, After Reopening: Creating a Sustainable Touring Landscape. Hear from arts leaders about the questions on all our minds: What will the touring landscape look like two years from now? What lessons from the past 18 months can we carry forward to make sure reopening is not a return to normal, but a new beginning?
