Welcome from the ITAC chair Joan Parr

Welcome to ITAC, the International Teaching Artist Collaborative, and thank you for visiting our website!

The International Teaching Artist Conference brings together artists, organizations, funders, and researchers from all over the world to explore key issues relating to participatory arts practices. 

Supporting artists to step out of their work, reflect, build competencies and renew their vision is key to ensuring that people have creative opportunities of depth and quality.

The ITAC community represents a global ‘community of practice’, and through your creative skills of imagination, open-mindedness and problem solving, you individually and collectively, provide the opportunity for teaching artistry to develop and grow.  Read more about the background, vision and aims of ITAC on the About page.

We look forward to meeting you at the next conference.
