We are TAMA

By, For, & About Teaching Artists

National & State Arts Advocacy Days

As a Teaching Artist, it is your professional responsibility to advocate for the profession and field.

Make a commitment today to participate in your state’s advocacy day. Map out ways you can raise awareness about your work. Identify persons and organizations in your sphere of influence. Tell legislators why the arts and teaching artists matter! 

Need ideas on how to begin your advocacy journey? Drop into a virtual TA Cafe, and check out Our Resources here for recommended advocacy tools.

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.
