  • $55 – schools with 20% – 39% of students from low-income households

  • $30 – schools with greater than 60% of students from low-income households

Why the New Name?

Arts Ed Collaborative has held the ACTIVATE Arts Learning Conference (previously, Regional Arts Ed Day) since 2004. With the release of their brand-new theory of change, called the Activating Arts Learning framework, they know that this conference is an incredible opportunity to energize arts learning in our region. Arts Ed Collaborative uses this expansive theory of change to shape all of their sessions, so they realized it was time for a fresh name: the Activate Arts Learning Conference!
