Virtual Networking: Teaching Artists
Date: March 24, 2021
Time: 5:00-6:00pm PST
Co-Host: Tony Fuemmeler from Young Audiences of Oregon and SW Washington
Description: TVC’s virtual networking events are designed to be casual platforms for creatives to connect. This month, we invite teaching artists from throughout the region to gather! Come together to discuss what tools have provided support for online programs, strategies for balancing teaching with your own creative practice, and what resources you need right now. Each networking event begins with an opportunity to introduce yourself and your work. Then, we’ll explore engaging, timely discussion questions brought by the co-host. You’ll have a chance to meet local peers in your discipline to exchange ideas, ask questions, and build connections.
About the Co-host:
Tony Fuemmeler co-founded the Teaching Artist Studio at Young Audiences in 2013 to address the needs of artists working as educators. He currently serves as the Professional Development Coordinator for Young Audiences. Artistically, Tony explores transformation, expression, and articulation through mask theatre and puppetry.
Young Audiences Arts for Learning
Young Audiences of Oregon’s mission is to inspire young people and expand their learning through the arts. This organization was founded in 1958 as a local chapter of the nation’s largest arts-in-education organization. In 1989, the Portland-based organization merged with a smaller chapter in Vancouver to become Young Audiences of Oregon & SW Washington. They have steadily grown in scope and programming, evolving from presenting only classical music performances in our early years to currently offering a full range of educational arts programming in multiple disciplines and cultures—the only arts organization in the region to do so.
