Applications are open for TARP

Deadline is Friday, September 6 to apply for the Teaching Artist Roster Program (TARP)

Interested in teaching others about your artform?  Apply now to NWMAC for training.  Join our TARP roster!

The Teaching Artist Roster Program (TARP) is a seven-session training designed to support artists (visual, performing, writing, media, fine art) in refining and developing skills for conducting collaborative, in-depth arts learning experiences in organizations, community settings and schools. A small cohort of artists will be selected to participate in this training, conducted by our Training Specialist and guest peer coaches contracted by Northwest Minnesota Arts Council (NWMAC).

Artists who complete the program are listed on the NWMAC Teaching Artist Roster on our website. This roster will be used by area schools to select qualified artists in residencies in the years to come.  These residencies can be supported with grant funds from our office. Special designated funding exists for schools to sponsor artists on our Teaching Roster.

The deadline to apply is September 6, 2019 to participate in this round of our training series. There are 7 training sessions. Applicants must commit to attend all 7 sessions. There is no cost to attend!  This is the equivalent of receiving a $500 grant for training.

To apply, go to our on-line system, register, and complete the Teaching Artist Roster application.
