NJ Teaching Artists Professional Development

July 18 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

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.

Know of an event we should include?

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.
