The World Alliance for Arts Education (WAAE) 2021 Virtual World Summit will take place from October 11-15, 2021. The summit is titled Arts Impact 2021: Context Matters, and focuses on Arts Assessment and Evaluation. The purpose of the summit is to bring together arts education professionals worldwide to share the latest research, thought, and practice in arts education assessment and evaluation. We invite primary and secondary school arts educators, higher education professionals, arts education researchers and policymakers, national, state and local education officials from across the world to come together virtually at this international event.
The WAAE 2021 summit will host one pre-summit event, the Young & Emerging Leaders Forum (YELF). This event provides a space for young scholars, emerging leaders, and new colleagues to the field of arts education to share work and develop a community of learning for expanding the pipeline of leaders in the global field of arts and cultural education. The Forum will be coordinated by Jeff M. Poulin, the managing director of Creative Generation.
