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 campus
  • Connect and collaborate with colleagues to create practical classroom resources
