AATE 2024 Conference
held at the Swissotel Chicago
July 17-20, 2024

2024 is the time to be surrounded by the inspiring work of local organizations, artists, and educators from Chicago amid a national dialogue. Chicago is rooted in community and has always been a seed for programming, theatre, and initiatives that expand to other cities nationwide. For this year’s conference, we seek to explore how we root our movements for change in local communities. How do we make space for new voices to expand accessibility? How do we reclaim spaces to dream up new opportunities for theatre and education? Join us as we highlight youth and community voices that propagate change, and plant seeds for continued growth in our field.

The graphic features a stylized blue sky with fluffy white clouds and a scattering of colorful, abstract paint blobs. Text on the banner highlights that the report provides a decade of class registration insights and recommendations to help arts education programs SOAR in 2024.

Art Dock is a service that makes it very easy for artists to teach by taking care of the business side of teaching, allowing artists to focus on the teaching part they enjoy.  

Art Dock manages bookings, online payments, promoting classes, waitlists, cancellation policy, reminders, refunds and more.  All this at no cost to the artist! Art Dock loves to Gather | Create | Connect people and the arts.  We are in our third year with Art Dock and want to grow the artists we serve.  

As always, we could not do this work without your support. Thank you!

With Gratitude,

Katie Rainey
TAG Co-Executive Director
