We are TAMA

By, For, & About Teaching Artists

TAMA seeds local and regional networks throughout the mid-Atlantic region to encourage communication and collaboration among Teaching Artists about doing business, teaching, and creating art in order to establish an equitable and vibrant arts ecosystem. We grow together!

TAMA Resources

Share and find the tools that will support and empower Teaching Artists in their work as professionals and advocates for the field.

Are you an institution or organization who trains, hires or supports TAs?  List your organization in our partner and stakeholder directory.

Check out the November calendar!  It is a Quarterly Member Meeting month! Plus TAMA has a Book Club starting up, and then there are the regular monthly sessions with Genesis and the TA Cafe.  AEMS is hosting a symposium on anti-racism that you don’t want to miss.

My Dearest Arts Organization

GuildNotes published My Dearest Arts Organization, Are You Listening? to share a collage of TA perspectives on the impact of the pandemics, and offers a checklist on how arts organizations can do better.  Use this piece in your advocacy to ensure a vibrant and equitable arts ecosystem.  TAs must be fully recognized and valued for their contributions as paid professionals!

Thanks for completing your profile!

One of the challenges of our profession is that there is very little data about who we are, what we do and where we are working. Without a documentable presence, it’s difficult to advocate for funding and policies that benefit our work. Your profile will both help promote your work individually and it will help us aggregate data for our region. As you fill in the blanks below, you will have a choice as to who is allowed to see some of the information. Please note that the “Just Me” option does allow TAMA administration to see what you’ve entered. For example, when you enter your phone number, you can prevent that from appearing in your profile if you like, but TAMA administration can see it.
