The Berklee Institute for Arts Education and Special Needs (BIAESN) is delighted to announce the 2021 ABLE Conversation: Anti-Ableism, Representation, and Accessibility in Arts Education symposium, which will take place online on Saturday, November 20 from 11:00 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. Eastern standard time.

The ABLE Conversation symposium is an exceptional professional development opportunity in the field of arts education and special needs, bringing together educators, artists, researchers, policymakers, school administrators, program administrators, and students to share best practices, explore new research, and learn from each other. The symposium includes presentations, performances, and opportunities for facilitated discussion. We aim to move the conversation in the field forward, and we want you to join us.

Please note: Due to the ongoing circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, this event will be delivered only online. If you planned to attend in person, please be sure to amend your plans to participate online.
