TAP Work:


"I've had the immense honor of working with fellow organizers, educators, artists, and folx who are in the front lines in social services. I've also been able to find a fellow artist community that is passionate about finding best practices to utilize art as a vehicle for social change. One of the unique watershed moments here is realizing that others' lived experiences, esp. something like pedagogical/artistic practice/or personal work, is something that you can learn from as well and probably supersedes any book or theory you can read or learn about."
