Established in 2002, the Association of Teaching Artists Distinguished Service to Field Awards seek to raise the visibility of Teaching Artists within the arts in education fields and in the organizations for which they work. This year, for the first time, the Awards will be expanded to offer three categories:
Distinguished Service to the Field Award--awarded to a long-tenured artist educator (ATA is please to present this award in 2019 to ATA founder and out-going Executive Director Dale Davis)
Innovation in Teaching Artistry Award-- awarded to an early to mid-career teaching artist demonstrating innovation in the field
Teaching Artist Ally Award--awarded to a professional integral to the work of teaching artists, but not a teaching artist themselves
ATA is pleased to partner with The New School’s College of Performing Arts (CoPA) to host the 2019 ATA Awards. CoPA’s many undergraduate and graduate programs in Drama, Jazz, Classical and Contemporary Music have strong curricular connections to teaching artistry, including the new masters in Arts Management & Entrepreneurship. ATA seeks to raise the visibility of teaching artistry as a viable career path for the next generation of artists and is thrilled to see CoPA integrate this work into their curricula.
