The in-person ITAC6 conference events took place in Oslo from 1 - 3 September 2022, and offered more than 60 sessions, led by 80 teaching artists/participatory artists/community artists from over 35 countries. In addition to this, there were artistic performances, keynote speakers, communal art projects, panel discussions and mainstage presentations. It was a jam-packed 3 days of Teaching Artists content!

In-person ticket holders received access to the full digital conference and to top it all off, the in-person program included special excursions to local arts venues and institutions.

The ITAC6 digital program primarily took place in the days leading up to the Oslo gathering, from August 29 - 31 2022.
However, ITAC6's mainstage program (September 1-3) was also be live streamed for our digital audience, with social spaces opening online afterwards for collective discussion and reflection.

"Art is important for a number of reasons: to imagine, create and express, to understand oneself and others, to develop self-confidence and connect with others, to prepare for the future, and much more! I believe the cooperation in the Hubs will help enhance the field of art, both in society and not the least arts in education. Big changes may come from small changes; people meet, exchange, create, try out and learn, and the work develops. From the initiative and cooperation between Hubs, global sharing will be possible. Soon there will be more Hubs, and as we develop, the visibility of our work will grow and prosper!"
