The creative field continues to emerge from the destruction wrought by COVID-19—and does so even as new waves and challenges rise in front of us all. But the durability and resiliency of culture is profound, and if the challenges of the last few years have done anything positive, it is that they have clarified the vision, confirmed the importance of our work, and set the sector and the country up for a new spring.
As we come together in person for the first time since 2019, attendees at the 2022 Annual Convention will celebrate the transformative, collective strength of creative workers and cultural organizations across the United States; listen to and learn from culture bearers and creative leaders offering wisdom on the way forward; and connect with each other to spark renewal and rebirth in ourselves, our local creative sectors, and our communities.
Emerge with the late spring bursts of color punctuated by monuments, history, and memory in Washington, D.C., for the 2022 Americans for the Arts Annual Convention. Converge against the background of what has happened and what possibilities exist on the horizon to gather strength from each other, share strategies, celebrate successes, mourn losses, and take inspiration back to all corners of the country. And carry forward together, leading a country in transformation through cultural change, which must come first, is often hardest, and is always necessary.
We look forward to seeing you. We’ve missed you.
