The Teaching Artist Institute of Rochester (TAIR) is a professional development series for emerging and advanced teaching artists to expand their teaching practice and connect with a community of artists. This institute is open to artists of all disciplines, including but not limited to creative writers, visual artists, musicians, dancers, multi-media artists, and theater artists. This year, the training will be held in a hybrid virtual and in-person setting.
With funding thanks to the New York State Council on the Arts, Community-Word Project’s Teaching Artist Project staff have created this training in partnership with arts community members from the Rochester area. TAIR’s curriculum is based on the “creative process,” exploration methods, teaching practices and arts-in-education philosophy the Teaching Artist Project and Community-Word Project have developed over 23 years. The training is free for teaching artists and will run from late September to December of 2022.
For this year’s training, there are two tracks applicants may choose to apply for: Teaching Artistry 101 & Leadership in Teaching Artistry. Extended application deadline is September 9, 2022.
