Teaching Artists ROC

Based in Western and Central NY, Teaching Artists ROC places teaching artists in area schools, after-school programs, senior centers, and civic/cultural spaces. We are independent teaching artists and ensembles sharing a common interest in providing meaningful arts learning experiences for students of all ages. As teaching artists, we share the skills and perspectives we have developed through years of dedication to our disciplines. Each artist on our roster is different. Each has something special to offer.

Teaching Artists of the Lehigh Valley

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.

Early Childhood Network

Regional
A network for TAs working in Early Childhood Education. Share and learn from your TA colleagues as we bring programming to children aged 0-7, their educators, families and caregivers. Network meets the 2nd Wednesdays in September, January and April and may gather by request.

TA Cafe

Regional
Since the beginning of the pandemic, the Cafe has held weekly drop-in sessions. TAs come and go as schedules allow. This is an opportunity to plug into a community of TAs throughout the Mid-Atlantic. Come as you are. Commit and participate as you can and/or need. Share your dreams, invent the future, build a robust TA network, identify accountability partners, unpack community values, empower individual TAs, advocate for the field. . . anything is possible.

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.
