Since the beginning of the pandemic, teaching artists have gathered in support of each other in closed calls, where they felt safe. In this environment, they shared: grief and painful experiences, worries and concerns, and dreams of returning to their artmaking in a just and equitable nation and world. What follows is a representational collage expressing an uncensored perspective in a letter to you. This letter is an invitation to widen your perspective about the teaching artist experience. We follow-up with a step-by-step checklist derived from the perspective of teaching artists as a guide to realize our shared goal to create a vibrant arts ecosystem that is equitable for all.
