TA CAFE: Mondays | 9:30AM and Fridays | 3PM

The TA Cafe is your opportunity to plug into a community of teaching artists who live and work throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. Come as you are. Commit and participate as you can and/or need. Benefits include:

  • participation in a private space that is by and for TAs,
  • access to a network of teaching artists who collectively devise intelligent and creative solutions to the current and evolving challenges and needs,
  • developing an advocacy strategy that evolves every 1-3 months,
  • identifying your sphere of influence and how to maximize it in your advocacy efforts,
  • an opportunity for you to serve as a leader in the field, the sector, the nation and the world as we re-build and re-imagine beyond the pandemic(s)

Come, share your dreams, invent the future, build a robust TA network, identify accountability partners, unpack community values, empower individual TAs, advocate for the field, and so much more. . . Anything is possible! Together we are braver, stronger and wiser!

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

Genesis is a group, within the Teaching Artists of the Mid-Atlantic, which consists of Black and Brown by-Artists-for-Artists who support, uplift, and give voice to all Artists of Color who have 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. Led by TAMA NJ State Director and Certified Life Coach, Wincey Terry-Bryant, the network continues to grow and engage Black and Brown Teaching Artists in collaboration.
