News and Announcements

MARYLAND ARTS STATE COUNCIL: TUESDAY, DECEMBER 3 – BALTIMORE, MD

Dear Maryland Teaching Artist Individuals:

TAMA has requested that the Maryland State Arts Council (MSAC) give Teaching Artists more time to respond to their Strategic Planning Implementation Actions for Arts in Education, especially as those actions affect AIE grants. This meeting will be held at MSAC on Tuesday, December 13, 1-2PM.

This fall, MSAC held “Regional Arts Institutes” around the state. Artists, organizations and other interested parties were invited to participate, learn about the strategic plan and offer reflections. The feedback we got, however, suggested that there was too much information to digest, not enough time to respond, as well as too many TAs who didn’t know about it, couldn’t make it, or weren’t able to get in because of limited space. TAMA wrote a letter requesting additional opportunity to comment. 

Read through the ENTIRE Strategic Plan and consider how it supports the AiE actions and how the AiE actions may affect your work.

Please ask questions!  Share your questions and response in writing to us by email.  We will anonymously forward your feedback to MSAC.

Join the meeting in person, online or by phone. By participating, together, we will let MSAC know that their action plans must consider and support the excellent work of Maryland Teaching Artists.

WHAT: TA Meeting with MSAC 
WHEN: Tuesday, December 3, 1-2PM

IN PERSON: Maryland State Arts Council in Baltimore
PHONE/ONLINE: via GoToMeeting platform
