The engage International Conference is a major annual event that brings together arts and education professionals from the United Kingdom and overseas. It usually takes place in a town or city in the UK, and is often hosted by an art gallery or museum, with evening events including a conference dinner.

Each conference provides the chance to: 

  • Hear from local, national and international speakers about projects and research
  • Get involved in participatory or discursive breakout sessions
  • Present and share practice
  • Network and catch up with colleagues

Places are heavily discounted for engage members.
