It’s officially time to start planning next fall’s Mega-Arts Conference in Balboa Park. Many of you had very interesting suggestions for presentations after last fall’s conference and we’re looking forward to hearing more great ideas for visual arts sessions and presentations at next year’s. We’re starting planning earlier this year and ramping up our technological tools in organizing the conference, per many of your recommendations.
If you or one of your colleagues have great ideas, projects or topics to preset to our professional community, please share by making a session proposal.
Please see the MEGA-Call for Session Proposals below from Russ Sperling of the San Diego County Office of Education and find the snappy link to submit a proposal online!
Call for Session Proposals
This is the official announcement that opens the call for session proposals for the Arts Empower Mega Conference. This year’s conference will take place in Balboa Park on Thursday, October 9, 2014. All break out session proposals, regardless of arts discipline, will be submitted using the online form linked below. The relevant professional association/organization will review the proposals according to discipline or intended audience, as in music educators (CMEA-SBS) will review music proposals and visual art educators (SDCAEA) will review art proposals, etc. All sessions will be one hour in length.
The first Mega Conference was very successful last year, and this year’s conference promises to be bigger and better. Please consider submitting a proposal for the conference. There are “intended audience” categories for dance, music, theatre, visual art, elementary multiple subject teachers, teaching artists, school administrators and common core. There is the opportunity to include multiple presenters (“speakers”) for any given session. See the proposal form for more information regarding the planning committee’s requests of information.
The deadline for submissions is June 13, after which time the online form will no longer be available.
