2010 3Arts Teaching Artist Award

The new 3Arts Teaching Artist Awards are the first of their kind in the nation, offering unrestricted grants to women, people of color, and people with disabilities who work as teaching artists in our city.

Through a nomination-only process, three teaching artists—one each in music, theater, and visual arts, receive $15,000 awards with no strings attached. The awards honor the many independent professional artists whose practice combines equal parts art and education and whose vision is to share their tandem skills with people of all ages through projects in schools, hospitals, care facilities, prisons, community centers, and beyond.
