This convening brings together artists, teachers, and youth to celebrate and be inspired by innovative curricula, youth-led projects, and socially engaged artist practices that expand the realm of arts learning.

Join participants of the MCA’s intensive Learning programs—the Teacher Institute, School Partnership for Art and Civic Engagement (SPACE), and the Teen Creative Agency—at 10 am in the Edlis Neeson Theater for a keynote presentation. Stay for breakout workshops, drop-in conversations, and a curriculum gallery throughout the museum.

Coffee and pastries will be provided in the morning and childcare will be available free of charge by MCA Family Day assistants after the keynote.
