3 Million Stories Conference at ASU

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

3 Million Stories brought together arts school deans, artists, administrators, faculty, community leaders, and students (among others) to examine the world of work among artists and designers. The conference built on the insights from the Strategic National Arts Alumni Project (SNAAP), a survey of over 100,000 arts graduates from more than 300 institutions. The title comes from the roughly three million people with arts degrees from American educational institutions.

A sense of urgency fueled the first conference. One attendee observed that they valued the “chance to interact with artists and arts administrators from across disciplines to discuss the important issues no one else seems to be talking about at my institution.”

The arts education economy is rapidly transforming, accountability standards for institutions of higher learning are escalating, and deficiencies in access and equity are still plaguing the field. Within this context, participants will probe issues ranging from curricular reform to institutional transformation—along the way covering such themes as the future of work, the entrepreneurial artist, the potential impact of arts in communities, and how to interpret and use SNAAP data.
