Image for Teaching Artists Guild Launches TAG Quarterly Publication

Jul 01, 2015

Teaching Artists Guild (TAG) – a professional membership-based organization dedicated to supporting teaching artistry – has released the first issue of a quarterly publication that will include interviews, in-depth features, business advice, upcoming events, field developments, and job opportunities.

TAG Quarterly is part of an effort to make the life of a teaching artist more sustainable, impactful, and meaningful. The publication's first issue explores arts in correctional facilities, catches up with featured teaching artist Nilaja Sun, and looks at the business of being a teaching artist. You can access the publication for free at TAG's website.

In line with TAG's mission, the National Guild is working to strengthen and advance the field of teaching artistry. At the 2015 Conference for Community Arts Education, Eric Booth and the National Guild are collaborating on a Teaching Artist Development track. Building on the energy-charged work of the past two Guild conferences, this year’s track includes a full-day pre-conference institute (November 11) and a series of breakout sessions during the main conference. The program will provide a rare opportunity for teaching artists and those who care about advancing the field—employing organizations, funders, organizations that train teaching artists, and others.—to work together to draft an action plan for improving the business of teaching artistry, advancing the quality and breadth of teaching artist practice, and activating a national network of the teaching artist field. The track will also include a special off-site professional development workshop for teaching artists only on Saturday, November 14. Registration for the Conference for Community Arts Education opens July 15!
