The International Teaching Artist Conference (ITAC), is an international platform, which brings together socially engaged artists from around the world practicing in diverse fields, from local communities to educational institutes, and enables them to exchange ideas and deepen their expertise. Beyond one-off events, ITAC operates as a year-round international collaborative network, where artists can mutually support each other and connect. The ITAC vision is a world where every country has artists working in the heart of communities and learning. Where these artists are continually improving, internationally connected and well supported, and the potential of the practice and its transformative power is visible and valued.
ITAC conferences take place biennially in different global cities from Oslo, Norway in 2012 (ITAC1), Brisbane, Australia in 2014 (ITAC2), Edinburgh, Scotland in 2016 (ITAC3) and New York, U.S., 2018 (ITAC4). ITAC5, for the first time in Asia, will be held in Seoul, Korea and attended widely online.
This biennial event aims to be a dynamic platform for:
- sharing practice, learning and researching in the field of participatory arts
- showcasing the best and next practice of the host and visiting nations
- generating new connections and building palpable energy towards the international community
