2019-20 TAP Alliance Impact

TAP Alliance offered 27 different elective seminars to both the 2019-20 TAP class and Teaching Artists on their various rosters.

TAP Alliance programming continues to be affected by the outbreak of COVID-19. In the Spring of 2020 each organization pivoted to virtual learning and transitioned our normally in-person workshops to webinars. Because of this, the TAP Cohort was able to offer more professional development opportunities than previously possible.
