NASAA Assembly 2024: Oct. 23-26, San Juan, Puerto Rico

Planning for NASAA Assembly 2024 is underway. We can’t wait to see our colleagues from state arts agencies across the country in San Juan, Puerto Rico, October 23-26!

As with every NASAA Assembly, this year’s gathering is open to all staff and council/board members of state and jurisdictional arts agencies. It is an opportunity for you to experience professional development targeted to your unique role in state government and exchange ideas with your colleagues from around the nation. The Assembly equips you with knowledge and skills you can use to serve the public and facilitate the educational, civic and economic success of communities in your state through the arts.

San Juan

Our hosts at the Institute of Puerto Rican Culture (ICP) are eager to share their experiences with you this fall. Puerto Rico is a living demonstration of how arts and culture are integral to community life, economic development and resiliency. ICP has led courageous recovery efforts after natural disasters and has played a major role in rebuilding the island’s arts and culture sector. We draw on our host’s unique expertise by including Assembly topics such as:

  • cultural entrepreneurship
  • resiliency and emergency preparedness
  • serving communities with limited resources
  • the contribution of arts and culture to health and well-being

San Juan has a vibrant, spirited arts scene—and there will be plenty of time for NASAA Assembly 2024 participants to experience it! You’ll have a chance to interact with and learn from community organizations and programs that are examples of San Juan’s flourishing arts and culture network.

Precons and Peer Groups

NASAA Assemblies offer all participants time to meet separately with your job-alike peers from other state arts agencies to discuss issues of common interest. In addition to these peer group meetings during the Assembly, special preconferences will be held over the dates of October 21-23 for these state arts agency groups:

  • accessibility coordinators
  • arts education managers
  • community development coordinators
  • folk and traditional arts program managers

More details on dates and agendas will be available soon.
