AATE 2020 Conference

July 23 - August 2, 2020

AATE’s 33rd annual conference July 23-August 2, 2020. In the year 2020, what does vision mean for those in the fields of theatre and education? In this Conference we’ll review the rich history of the field, examine today’s challenges and opportunities, and cast our sights to what’s next for theatre and education. Even though our Conference is moving to a virtual platform we will still be highlighting the vibrant energy and nationally impactful art-making that is coming out of Phoenix and the Southwest. In addition to the professional development provided by our sessions we invite everyone who belongs to the intersection of theater and education to gather in our various networking opportunities. As 2020 has been a year of impactful and life changing events, we will engage with the topics related to our current events and look to the future as we continue to be part of the change. What’s your vision, in 2020 and beyond?
