Teaching Artist Project (TAP) is now enrolling artists for our comprehensive 8 month signature program!

TAP is a collective of antiracist, diversely experienced, training, emerging and working arts educators and teaching artists who are looking for a supportive community to engage in a self-reflective, justice-oriented learning practice to enhance their teaching.

Our program is committed to the professional development of teaching artists through a social justice methodology that translates creative process into educational practice. TAP workshops will be in-person for our 2023-24 programming season. Our 8 month Signature Program will run from October 2023 to May 2024 including internships, which will be in-schools and in arts administrative offices. Some of our community building and art sharing events will remain virtual and scheduled in advance. It’s a great opportunity for any artists or educators who want to expand their skill set, and we’re happy to announce that applications are now open on our website!

Though the program is tuition based, scholarships and payment plans are available for those who qualify. Tuition for the 2023-24 Signature Program is $950.

Visit our website for FAQs and access to our application, or feel free to email us with any questions!
