About the conference:
Presented by the Alliance Theatre, Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, and High Museum of Art, the fourth annual Woodruff Arts Center Educator Conference will take place June 6-8, 2017.  One of Atlanta's most dynamic and collaborative professional learning events, this year’s Educator Conference will explore the theme: Building Community through the Arts.  Over the course of three days, participants will experience world-class art and engage in workshops led by professional artists and educators in order to reflect upon the essential question: How does my practice build community through the arts? 

Participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Reflect on a compelling new theme
  • Hear from outstanding keynote speakers, to be announced – stay tuned!
  • Experience world-class art on The Woodruff Arts Center 
  • Connect and collaborate with colleagues to create practical classroom resources
  • Participate in one conference track, or explore an array of topics, including:
    • Early Childhood Education
    • Fine Arts Instruction (Visual Art, Theatre, Orchestral Music)
    • Arts Integration (Connecting Visual Art, Theater, and Music to other content areas, such as English/Language Arts, Science and Social Studies); and
    • STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics)
Join us:
This is the premier arts education conference for you!  Workshops are designed for educators (Pre-K through Grade 12), administrators, teaching artists, and relevant practitioners.  Expand your Professional Learning Community at #WACEdConf17!
