Annual Conference


ICFAD’s 58th Annual Conference
San Diego | October 2022

We will update this page about ICFAD’s 58th Annual Conference, as information becomes available. Plan to join us in San Diego, California in October 2022.

We’re planning the conference collaboratively with The National Council of Arts Administrators. Many of you remember that in 2017 when we met in Halifax, we planned a conference cooperatively with The Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities, The Association of Independent Colleges of Art and Design, and The Canadian Association of Fine Arts Deans. It was a wonderful opportunity to meet new colleagues and consider issues in the arts in higher education with a broader perspective.

In October 2022 we will visit the campuses of

  • University of San Diego, where former ICFAD board member Gail Baker serves as Vice President and Provost;
  • San Diego State University where a new Performing Arts District will be complete; and
  • University of California San Diego in La Jolla, listed among the top 23 in subject area rankings by U.S. News and World Report

Known as the Smithsonian of the West, Balboa Park is the largest urban park with cultural institutions in the nation. 17 museums and more than 10 performance spaces call it home.

If you would like to recommend issues to be covered; speakers to be featured; or play a role in conference planning, please reach out to us by sending Executive Director Alison Pruitt an email soon: [email protected].
