TAMA Network Events

TAMA is using our networks to support Teaching Artists as they experience the impact of COVID-19.

TAMA SALON SERIES & Quarterly Member Meeting

In these unprecedented times, we turn to our community that is both rich in spirit and generosity for inspired local and regional networking!  Introducing the TAMA SALON SERIES!  We are stronger when we are connected. 

If you are struggling to connect to zoom to join a session, using the eventbrite email and zoom instructions, contact us. We will arrange a private specialized training to walk you through the steps. We want to make sure every TA in the Mid-Atlantic is connected!

TA CAFE: Mondays | 9:30AM

Start your work week out with TAMA! Rise and shine TAs!  Before you plug into the news, grab your coffee or tea and plug into your network.  As Teaching Artists are invited to reinvent their work, this is an opportunity to share your dreams and invent the future together.

Genesis: TAs of the Diaspora: First Tuesdays | 1PM

Individual artists of color have been hit especially hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. Particularly because people of color are disproportionately getting and dying from COVID. Artists who do not have the backing of a large institution are left to navigate canceled gigs and mounting bills while trying to balance the stress, fear, and anxiety all alone.  This Brainstorm Group Share, led by TAMA NJ State Director and Certified Life Coach, Wincey Terry-Bryant, is exclusively for individual Teaching Artists of color living and/or working in the Mid-Atlantic region. Come share your heart, your fears, anxieties, ideas, and resources. Know that you are NOT alone. We will get through this together.

Email us with networks and resources you learn about that may benefit Teaching Artists in the Mid-Atlantic – locally, statewide and regionally. TAMA will filter and tailor the information to each network region, so that each Teaching Artist receives the most relevant and timely support.

When you join our mailing list we advise you to UPDATE YOUR PREFERENCES in your TAMA mailing list account. By doing so, you tell us a little bit about yourself. This link is always available in the footer of every email TAMA sends, so you can easily make changes to what information you receive. This increases our ability to sort and segment our mailing list geographically, by art form, skills, expertise and interest. This is an increasingly valuable feature.  Our needs will differ from community to community, and much of our strength and stability will come from our ability to connect and respond locally.

TAMA Networks are VITAL!
