Infinite Support

The Teaching Artist Union is on a serious mission. The School of the Future is in full swing, and Brooklyn is the place to be tonight if you are an emerging TA, or a veteran.

Details below:

This Wednesday, please join us for our first EVER
Please RSVP || Union Hall || 1013 Grand St., 4th Floor || L Train to Grand

Come with a pencil, leave with a treasure map.

Led by Phoebe Zinman Winters, we will lay out all the nuts and bolts we have gathered about working in alternative spaces in NYC as a teaching artist.

Are you interested in becoming a Teaching Artist in NYC, but you don't know where to start? Are you an experienced Teaching Artist in NYC, but you want to know what the rest of us are doing? Let's get together, pool our resources and experiences and get our open source on! We will eventually use the information we collect in a Teaching Artist Manual. In the process, you can come experience the information waterfall.

We will discuss:

-What types of jobs are available to teaching artists

-Organization models

-Application Procedures

-Where to look for jobs

-Experiences within different types of institutions and organizations

Plus: West Side Story - Something's Coming
