Most memorable TATIP moment:
“Being apart the TATIP program was a incredible experience filled with amazing professional development and enriching communal dialouge. I learned so much through the wended sessions and additional seminars on social justice and community development through the arts, the closing rituals were a wonderful opportunity and passionate exchanges of knowledge and artistic literature and practices. The memorable and impactful quote that I vividly remember was a share quote during one of our closing rituals:”
“The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny. It is the light that guides your way” -Heraciltus
