Genesis

Regional

Genesis is for TAMA’s Black and Brown TAs who support, uplift, and give voice to all Artists of Color, especially those with ties to Africa by way of direct lineage, heritage, bloodline and/or experience, and have been impacted by any form of racism. This network organized on April 21, 2020 when individual teaching artists of color were hit especially hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. This network continues to grow and engage Black and Brown Teaching Artists in collaboration.

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.
