"TAP has been an amazing opportunity to explore and examine the responsibility we have as teaching artists to our learners and communities. I've learned and shared so much participating in the collaborative, co-learning environment. And I've come away with more tools, more inspiration, and a stronger sense of purpose."
Most Memorable TAP Moment:
"This has been such a special experience; so well designed and executed. Appreciate all the forethought and care."
