MISSION STATEMENT

The Teaching Artist Union is composed of NYC artists
who teach as a part of their creative practice.  
With this union, we aim to define the role of the teaching artist through developing a supportive community,
celebrating and exhibiting the work produced in teaching situations, and advocating for the rights and needs of the teaching artist.  
We work in many different kinds of environments: for non profit arts organizations, schools, museums, and other agencies. Because we believe that art can invigorate, agitate,
and reorient stale institutional habits, we want to develop a lasting structure to support the happiness and health of every manifestationof Teaching Artist.
