Ten years ago, the ICA galvanized a movement for teen arts education with the first-ever national Teen Convening. On November 2-4, 2018, the ICA hosted Building Brave Spaces: Mobilizing Teen Arts Education, an unprecedented gathering to reflect and build upon the knowledge and field-wide progress made in teen arts education over the past decade. Functioning as a catalyst, this event served as a forum for collaboration and understanding across institutions, generations, and geographies. Through keynote sessions, workshops, and panels this conference addressed three key areas: what we know about the impact of arts education on teens; innovative programs that museums are doing and the leadership required; and how to mobilize a broader field.
