The New Jersey State Council on the Arts will be hosting a professional development for New Jersey teaching artists on Monday, July 18, 2022, at 4:00 PM. The professional development will be led by Jennifer Ridgway and Wincey Terry-Bryant of Teaching Artists of the Mid-Atlantic (TAMA).
In this informative session, participants will hear how TAMA can provide networking and support for the region’s teaching artists. In addition, they will share how TAMA advocates for teaching artists through professional development (social media strategies, contract and pay scale support, and self-care). Participants will learn how TAMA strives to bring together artists of various backgrounds and experiences in concert with partner agencies, educational institutions, organizations, and communities.
The New Jersey State Council on the Arts will serve as a connector and resource during the professional development. Funding for projects, fellowships, or additional work opportunities will not be discussed. To keep up to date on opportunities for artists, please sign up for the Council’sOpportunities for the Field newsletter.
Registration is required to attend the sessions. To ensure all attendees are able to contribute to a robust, thoughtful conversation, registration will be limited to teaching artists only. Arts education administrators and organizations who wish to connect with the Council can contact Samantha Clarke.

As professionals, we face the challenge of limited data about who we are, what we do and where we work, which makes it hard to advocate for and secure funding and policies that benefit us. But worry not! Your profile can help promote your work and provide data for our region. When filling out your profile, you can control who sees the content in every field. Visibility options include: everyone, only me, all members, and my friends. Just a heads up, the “Only Me” option includes TAMA administration so we can collect the data for the field.
