American University's Emerging Arts Leaders 2022 Symposium 

American University's Emerging Arts Leaders (EALS) presents their 15th annual 2022 Symposium: Reopen & Revitalize. As the first in-person Symposium after two years of socially distanced conversation, rising and established leaders in the arts will gather together in a community of learning. The Symposium will be held on April 3, 2022 at the Katzen Arts Center at American University.

At the 15th Annual Emerging Arts Leaders Symposium, you can expect:

- An inspiring keynote speaker to frame the day’s focus

- Valuable and actionable panel conversations with experienced arts leaders, representing multiple arts disciplines and a range of issues facing the sector

-Networking opportunities to engage and develop new connections with arts professionals

- A digital EALS program, which will be updated regularly with schedule announcements and provide an opportunity for continued networking

- Careful adherence to American University’s COVID rules and regulations

After the conclusion of the Symposium (4:30PM), continue to connect with arts professionals over drinks, snacks, and a fundraiser during the Happy Hour & Fundraiser. This will be from 4:30-6:00 PM.
