"My fieldwork is in arts administration; it’s an area that has always interested me. So the workshops conducted by Katie have been beneficial with the detailed process of grant writing and the various tools used; the do’s and don’t of starting a nonprofit have been very useful. The experience of all artists and the discussion with the peer group have been very enriching. TAP personally has given me a lot more confidence in building a successful career as an artist."
Most Memorable TAP Moment:
