Save the date for the largest in-person convening of arts professionals in Illinois.
One State 2023 will gather leaders, practitioners, artists, and administrators from across Illinois in Springfield on April 24 and 25. The event will be broken into two days of programming: Conference Day and Capital Day. Attendees are welcome to join us for one or both dates.
Since 1999, Arts Alliance and the Illinois Arts Council Agency have hosted the One State Together in the Arts Conference.
Now known as just “One State,” the conference has convened thousands of arts and culture individuals across Illinois for conversations, performances, exhibitions, presentations, and networking. As the first in-person One State Conference since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, 2023’s event is about being in community with one another. This is an opportunity to share resources, build and strengthen our network of mutual aid within the arts and culture sector in Illinois, and support emerging artists and arts leaders.
Scholarships will be made available by the Illinois Arts Council Agency. Stay tuned for more information soon.
