For the first time in history, CODE is partnering with the Ontario Arts Council to welcome both teachers and artists to our conference. Together, we will work alongside one another in professional development workshops, network and socialize together in the resort setting of Blue Mountain, and make connections that we hope will extend beyond the conference to your classroom, school and community. 

Special Features of this Conference include:

  • workshops by teachers, artists and teacher-artist partnerships, including Allen and Karen Kaeja, Christine Jackson and Martha Burns, Adrienne Smoke, Larry Swartz, Project Humanity, Janice Pomer and more
  • keynote speaker Hannah Beatch, director of the Dandelion Dance Company, "I Can Dance a Better World"
  • Reach Project Presentations on collaborations between schools and their communities
  • a teacher-artist panel discussion focusing on the creation of successful teacher-artist partnerships
  • energizer workshops, networking socializers, Gala dinner and more, all in the beautiful setting of Blue Mountain Resort
