Join your colleagues to learn about arts, access, and inclusion in early learning communities. The Arts Uplift! conference brings together early learning educators, arts specialists, teaching artists, counselors, administrators, and caregivers working to expand accessible arts instruction in their communities. Participants gain tools for their own creative growth and teaching practices.

Save the Dates: August 2 – 4, 2022

  • A FREE virtual conference for educators, teaching artists, and leadership across Washington State

ArtsWA strives to make all events welcoming and inclusive. We are working hard to integrate accessibility practices into all our learning spaces. All Arts Uplift! sessions will be auto-captioned, American sign language-interpreted, and Spanish language-interpreted.
