Teaching Artists and the Future of Education:
Working in partnership with Nick Rabkin, I served as a qualitative research partner for the Bay Area component of the national Teaching Artist Research Project (TARP). TARP was the first-ever US research project to explore the world of teaching artists and local dynamics in arts education through studies in twelve communities across the country. I was engaged to help conduct research on the condition of the Bay Area’s arts education ecosystem and lead series of local interviews with a cross-section of practitioners, including artists, funders, and policymakers, in an effort to better understand the unique needs of teaching artists. The final TARP report for can be found here.
