ITAC6

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

Apply to Attend as a Delegate

Seanse Art Center and the International Teaching Artist Collaborative (ITAC) are delighted to announce that ITAC6 will be held in Oslo, Norway from 1 - 3 September 2022.

ITAC6’s theme will be ART AS A CATALYST FOR CHANGE, exploring the intersections of arts with education, health, environment, and society in the 2020s. The conference will offer 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.

Want to come along? You can still register to attend online!

Join 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 have received proposals to present sessions from every continent (40+ countries) and are excitedly programming the most innovative and urgent international experience possible. Our newly launched ITAC Hubs will also take centre stage, guiding us through examples of best, next and radical practice in their region. We welcome 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 is committed to convening an inclusive and diverse cohort of colleagues. For this reason, we ask delegates to apply to attend (rather than offering first-come-first-served-ticketing), and the number of in-person participants who can attend from any one geographical region will be capped. A robust virtual component will be offered for those who wish to attend remotely, and full and partial scholarships will be available for those who wish to attend in-person but face financial barriers.

- To attend in-person, an ITAC6 ticket costs: 400 EURO or, for a Student, 240 EURO

This includes three lunches, Opening Reception and Closing Ceremony with serving.

A limited number of scholarships and bursaries are available.

- To attend digitally, an ITAC6 ticket costs: 20 EUR

*You will not be asked to pay anything until after your attendance status is confirmed.
