The Collaborative

Welcome you to the ITAC Collaborative! After a fantastic conference in New York it is my great pleasure to send you, our delegates and friends, the first ITAC Collaborative update. Our updates will come to you regularly with news of the work happening in our field, opportunities, events, free goodies, and general notes of interest for our sector. If you have something you think would fit well that you’d like to contribute and have featured please get in touch with me ( I have already begun working with our Leadership Committee and Catalysts to develop ITAC into a year round Collaborative, and look forward to doing more in the coming months. (We’ve got big plans for the website and how to keep us all connected), so stay active with us as engaged, collaborative partners. I’m so happy to be working with, and for you!

ITAC Catalysts

Since #ITAC4NYC a team of enthusiastic, energised Teaching Artists has formed, with the express purpose of driving forward the work of our Collaborative. These Catalysts come from far and wide, with a range of art forms and experience. We have already begun working together to develop plans around sustaining the energy and connections we all felt during the conference. See below an introduction to the group:

Funding Opportunities
  • ITAC project funding (deadline 31st Oct) - Contact Madeleine -Reminder to delegates in the USA and South Korea there is funding for a project which connects these countries
  • Stellar Quines (deadline 29th Oct)
  • Fellowships for Social Entrepreneurs Worldwide (deadline 30th October)
If you know of any funding opportunities or partnership calls, please get in touch with Madeleine, and we will share the information on our social media platforms

Get involved
  • Take part in the Flag Project by hosting our ITAC Flag. We invite host organisations/ communities who will recreate the stitching and storytelling project from ITAC4 in their home setting—a fantastic way to build local teaching artist community together. We welcome local flag projects, from all over the world, to add to the gigantic ITAC flag which will be assembled at ITAC5, our version of the Olympic flame! Please use the flag project as a way to bring together your local community as a part of our global community. Contact Madeleine for more information. 
  • Contribute to the ITAC Timeline with significant moments in our field: We especially need items posted from countries other than the US and UK—our story lives everywhere, please help write our history.
  • Showcase your work and be featured, or recommend someone to be featured, in ITAC’s upcoming On a Daily Basis social media campaign. Contact Madeleine for more information
