The 6th International Teaching Artist Conference (ITAC6), Oslo, 1st-3rd September 2022

Seanse Art Center and the International Teaching Artist Collaborative (ITAC) were delighted to host ITAC6 in Oslo, Norway from 1 - 3 September 2022.

ITAC6’s theme was ART AS A CATALYST FOR CHANGE, exploring the intersections of arts with education, health, environment, and society in the 2020s. The conference offered both in-person and online programming for delegates.

ITAC conferences are a dedicated gathering space for artists who work in communities, schools, and beyond, using their practice to create positive social change. Our conferences take place in a different part of the world every 2 years, and provide Teaching Artists (known by different titles such as community artist, participatory artist, socially engaged artist etc.) with space for international networking, professional development, accessing next, best, and radical practices, partnership building, knowledge exchanges and more.

Thank you to all who joined us for 3 jam packed days of hands-on workshops, keynote speeches, roundtable discussions, co-creations, communal art projects, and more, led by Teaching Artist colleagues from all over the world. We received proposals to present sessions from every continent (40+ countries) and were excited to curate an international offering of the most innovative and urgent international experiences possible. Our newly launched ITAC Hubs also took centre stage, guiding us through examples of best, next and radical practice in their region. We welcomed practitioners of all experience levels, backgrounds, and art forms to join us. The power of our gatherings comes from the diversity and collaboration from people in our sector.

As always, ITAC was committed to convening an inclusive and diverse cohort of colleagues. For this reason, we asked delegates to apply to attend (rather than offering first-come-first-served-ticketing), and the number of in-person participants who could attend from any one geographical region was be capped. A robust virtual component was offered for those who wished to attend remotely, and full and partial scholarships were made readily available for those who wished to attend in-person but faced financial barriers.
