Preregistration is open for teacher groups 

 We are currently preregistering groups of classroom teachers. If you are interested in this option, please reach out to Chris Duerr at 412-201-7405 or duerrc@artsedcollab.org by 5.27.22. We are happy to offer conference registration on a sliding scale:  

  • $70 – schools with less than 20% of students from low-income households  
  • $55 – schools with 20% – 39% of students from low-income households  
  • $40 – schools with 40% – 59% of students from low-income households  
  • $30 – schools with greater than 60% of students from low-income households 

Why the New Name?

Arts Ed Collaborative has held the ACTIVATE Arts Learning Conference (previously, Regional Arts Ed Day) since 2004. Thousands of arts educators and other stakeholders have participated in hundreds of concurrent sessions since that time.

With the release of our brand-new theory of change, called the Activating Arts Learning framework, we know that this conference is an incredible opportunity to energize arts learning. We use this expansive theory of change to shape all of our sessions, so we realized it was time for a fresh name: the Activate Arts Learning Conference!
