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.
