What is teaching artistry? What are the different career paths a teaching artists can take? What kinds of communities can artists work with? What tools do artists who have a passion for teaching need to build a career?

Participants in this session will be introduced to the New Victory Theater Teaching Artist Pathways Tool (TAP Tool). This 90-minute workshop will invite participants to use the tool to chart their own career paths individually In small groups, participants will share their own teaching journeys and consider their various paths and goals. This process will also give participants the opportunity for resource-sharing and building community.
