Apply for the Washington State Teaching Artist Training Lab’s Core Program Today!

21-22 TAT Lab Core Program

Our friends at the Washington State Teaching Artist Training Lab (TAT Lab) are accepting applications for their Core program! The program is an opportunity to develop your teaching craft with a statewide community of teaching artists and arts educators.

In this 7-month program, participants explore learning plan design, learning frameworks, and teaching methods. Faculty and participants will seek to create more inclusive and culturally responsive learning spaces for youth. The Core Program focuses on community building, creative thinking, racial justice, and social emotional well-being for both students and educators. It’s an opportunity to share your expertise and learn alongside peers who are working in various contexts and artistic disciplines across Washington state.

Applications are currently open for the upcoming year (Dec 21 – June 22). Apply here by October 25th! In addition, please spread the word about this exciting opportunity to your communities.

R.I.S.E. Award Nominations

Relatedly, the TAT Lab is accepting nominations for its Teaching Artists R.I.S.E. Award (Representation, Inclusion, Service, Education). The R.I.S.E. Award will provide tuition-free spots in the Core Cohort for up to four nominees who represent identity groups historically underrepresented in TAT Lab.

TAT Lab prioritizes building a dynamic cohort in our professional learning TAT Lab Core Program that is representative of the state’s population. Last year, they created the R.I.S.E. Award to honor and support diverse arts education voices in Washington state. Through this award, TAT Lab commits to reserving tuition-free spots for cohort members who represent identity groups who have been historically underrepresented in TAT Lab. Successful award nominees will be invited to join the TAT Lab Core program tuition-free. 

Find more information on the R.I.S.E. award here and please spread the word to anyone you think would benefit from deepening their teaching practice in the supportive TAT Lab community.  

And use this form to nominate yourself or a teaching artist you know or work with who is an important emerging voice in your community.
