In 2019 the World Alliance for Arts Education (WAAE) is hosting 2 international strategic planning conferences. The first conference will be in Luxor, Egypt from the 27-30 March 2019. Details for this conference are in the attachment above. We are then following up this event with a another Conference in Frankfurt, Germany, from the 28 October – 1 Nov. 2019. Our aim is to build a strong awareness of global issues and directions for arts education and make a strategic plan that will support practitioners and policy makers. We accept that holding two conferences may seem ‘too much’, however we are very excited to engage with arts educators in Egypt, Northern Africa and the Middle East. We are then also excited by the plans being fostered in Frankfurt to re connect with UNESCO. Ralph Buck Chair, WAAE Executive Council
