Zoom Meeting. Register by 5pm April 23: https://bit.ly/3m4qksx
The Teaching Artist Guild (TAG), the National Guild for Community Arts Education, and other teaching artist associations want to listen to teaching artists now and enter into an open line of communication moving into the future.
They want to hear from teaching artists who may be emerging to those with a veteran career so that they can better understand the unique needs and challenges of the TA community on the grassroots level across the nation. This listening tour will equip these organizations in their support of and advocacy for teaching artists.
Who are “teaching artists”? Honestly, there are many ways to answer this question because it often looks a little different depending on where you live. Some teaching artists work in classrooms, in after-school programs, at arts or culture organizations, in community centers, in parks, in juvenile detention systems, in faith centers, etc… or some combination of the above.
Do you have an ongoing creative practice of your own? Do you engage youth in that practice as a mentor, teacher or educator in the arts? This listening session needs your voice!
TAG is a member-driven organization committed to the professionalization and visibility of artists who teach through a combination of advocacy, support, and honoring the work of teaching artists. Read more about TAG here: https://teachingartistsguild.org/about/
