Update #11

What an amazing year!

Comment

A year ago this week we started a campaign, you funded our goals & we succeeded with your support!

Thank You.

Feb 4th 2011 was the inaugural launch of TCP's outreach programs. This year we placed our first six artists in free studio spaces and established mentorship programs with the youth of Jacob’s Ladder and One Love Generation. Exhibitions Jung at HeArt and The Second Coming attracted hundreds of people and exposed us all to a myriad of exciting performance and visual art forms. Our first annual city-wide arts supply drive provided vital provisions, enriching the arts education experiences of youth. To top it all off we received our official 501(c)3 status!

For 2012 our plans are even more far-reaching:

  • to award subsidized housing grants to at least two local artists as part of our artist-in-residency program
  • to create career support workshops for local artists through the growth of TCP's community education program
  • to provide further career support to our resident artists through a TCP exhibition schedule and programing for Art Basel Miami

Please consider supporting TCP again this year. With your help we can us reach our goals for 2012!

To volunteer, make a donation, and learn more about how your contributions help, please visit our support center. TCP and the arts community so greatly appreciate it!

With all my best,
