The Indian Art and Design Educators Association(IADEA) is a non-profit started in 2018 with the goal of providing learning and knowledge sharing opportunities for art educators across the country. Our members are over 350 art educators from 28 cities in India – these teachers collectively impact over 2,00,000 school children. Our knowledge partner include: Artreach India, Learning Matters, Centre for Teacher Accreditation, Nalanda Way, RainbowFish Educational Trust, Slam Out Loud, The Pomegranate Workshop, Tree Learning, Chennai Photo Biennale, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya (CSMVS museum), Foundation for Indian Contemporary Art and Kiran Nadar Museum of Art.

The IADEA annual national conference is a shared platform attended by over 250 art educators held virtually in 2020, that was held first At the Piramal Museum in Mumbai in 2018 and then in Delhi at the India International Center in 2019. We host smaller local workshops in various cities which have now also moved online because of the pandemic.

We have put out a call for lessons and the response has been amazing.
