''Conference is like a vitamin for me! I have come back to work with a long and external view of my organisation and how best to move forward'
Engage Conference Delegate, Glasgow, 2015

The Engage International Conference is a major annual event that brings together arts and education professionals from the United Kingdom and overseas. It 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. To register your interest in forthcoming conferences, please email Engage.
