Helping Teaching Artists Fly!: Organizations Dedicated to TA Growth
Gunn, Kristen
Teaching Artist Journal, v3 n4 p228-232 Feb 2005
The mission of this article is to introduce just a few of the organizations that are expanding the teaching artist field by addressing the artistic, educational, and business needs of today's TA head on. For some organizations, supporting TAs is a facet of what they do; for others, it is all they do. Staying true to their creative nature, each organization has arrived at a distinct approach to serving the TAs in their area. One organization convenes around a monthly potluck dinner and stimulating intellectual conversations. Others provide educational conferences, professional development or financial support, while others provide networking opportunities. A few communicate primarily through the Internet and e-mail. All are shaping the field by asking and answering tough questions about the needs of TAs and meeting those needs.
