These seminars and workshops are available to Teaching Artists, currently working at a Cohort member organization.

The TAP Cohort is dedicated to expanding and enhancing the Teaching Artist field, by providing quality and effective professional development seminars, workshops and internships through collective impact. The Cohort believes that by working together, we can provide our Teaching Artists with a comprehensive and diverse range of skills, to improve the arts in education field and better serve our constituency.

TAP Cohort offered 27 different elective seminars to both the 2019-20 TAP class and Teaching Artists on their various rosters. The TAP Cohort Spring 2020 programming was affected by the outbreak of COVID-19. However, each organization pivoted to virtual learning quickly and transitioned our normally in-person workshops to webinars. Because of this, the TAP Cohort was able to offer more professional development opportunities than previously possible. 

Previous Cohort Members: Lifetime Arts, MagicBox Productions, The Center for Arts Education, Wingspan Arts & Carnegie Hall
