Why Become a Partner?

Because our Partners thrive.

As a Partner, you have access to gig opportunities, funding, marketing, coaching and networking support that helps you grow and sustain a career in the arts. Our Partners represent our region’s diverse, inclusive arts sector.

Partners are the core reason we support, advocate and promote local art, and your success is our greatest joy.

The benefits of becoming a TAP Partner artist or organization begin with understanding the power of your own contribution to our region’s arts sector. A TAP partnership helps you be a crucial and valued part of our growing arts community.

Partner Benefits

We manage annual grants for individual artists and arts organizations, in addition to helping partners secure commissions, stipends and other funding for their time and talents.

We work with business, educational and service club sectors so that a diverse and inclusive representation of artists and arts organizations in our community are a seen and valued element of our social and economic success.

TAP upholds one of its core values — to promote a creatively enriched community — through consistent and regular communications. As a partner, you can promote your work or events, and even write articles for our blog.

We often directly connect our Partners with entities seeking their artistic services, for example, for an artist to paint a mural or vice-versa, or help businesses and other organizations put out calls seeking artists. We even offer protocols on how to jury applicants.

TAP’s staff will provide complimentary consulting with our Partners about grant writing, social media tutorials, how much they should charge for their art, strategic planning, as well as communications plans and strategies.
