International Teaching Artists Collaborative

Conference Host

The International Teaching Artists Collaborative (ITAC) is the world-wide network for artists who work in participatory settings to create positive social impact. These practitioners go by many titles in different countries and languages—often called Teaching Artists, Participatory Artists, Community Artists, or Socially Engaged Artists, and other titles. Whatever their title and artform, teaching artists practice to activate the artistry of others, and guide that powerful force in people toward positive outcomes.
