Conference Proposal Tips

The 33rd annual AATE Conference will take place in Phoenix, AZ from July 29-August 2, 2020. The conference theme is "Vision 2020".

In the year 2020, what does vision mean for those in the fields of theatre and education? In Phoenix, we'll review the rich history of the field, examine today's challenges and opportunities, and cast our sights to what's next for theatre and education. Surronded by the stunning beauty of the desert, conference attendees will experience the life and culture of a city known for vibrant energy and nationally impactful art-making. What's your vision, in 2020?

We encourage presenters to find the intersection of Vision, Theatre, and Education in their proposals. Show us what we can learn from the gazing into the past. Present what you're focusing on now. Inspire us to look forward to what's next in the field.

Make theatre with us, motivate us to learn and generate scholarship, and strike out boldly with original crossovers in theatre and education. Togehter, we will celebrate, support, challenge, and encourage each other, giving us all the tools needed to position ourselves -- and the year 2020 -- toward what can only be described as visionary.
