2017 NAEA National Convention

2017 NAEA National Convention, March 2–4, 2017, New York, NY

The 2017 NAEA National Convention will be held March 2-4, 2017 in New York City at the Hilton New York and Sheraton New York Hotel & Towers.

2017 NAEA National Convention Program Co-Coordinators: Debbie Greh & Joni Acuff

2017 NAEA National Convention theme: The Challenge of Change

Change is a difficult, unpredictable and unwieldy process, yet it is inevitable, especially in this dynamic, ever changing world. 2017 marks the 70th anniversary of the National Art Education Association. With this milestone anniversary in sight, the 2017 NAEA National Convention seeks to reflect upon our rich history and look to the future to identify the many challenges ahead for the field of art education.

Change is, essentially, effective action which acknowledges multiple narratives of history and philosophy; effective action respects the needs of diverse learners, embraces new philosophies of teaching and addresses social justice. As learners and educators, we experiment with innovative elements of technology and design and explore social media with respect for the past and an eye to the future.

Change is never complete and that is the real challenge: it is a continuous cycle that requires both vision and action. NAEA seeks proposals that inform and inspire action through civil discourse and generate practical conversations for envisioning the future of art education.
