Volunteer and help keep Arts Education alive


“Keep Austin Weird.” A slogan that any Austinite would be familiar with was adopted to support small business. Go local. Shop local. While these slogans aim to promote small businesses, what about promoting the arts? The University of Texas Community Engagement Collaborative’s slogan is “Keep Austin Creative.” In its recent article “The state of the arts: It’s never a bad time to celebrate culture” talks about how the arts do make an impact, an impact that can be measured. Part of this impact is the number of volunteers that arts organizations bring in each year. Volunteers are crucial to many non-profits, some running almost completely on volunteer support. This article really dives into the need for arts and culture to once again become a focal point. Check out the full article here.

Are you interested in the arts and looking to Volunteer this fall? TAP is currently seeking enthusiastic volunteers to assist our Teaching Artist in After School Programing. Through dance, music, theatre, and other creative outlets, students will learn about social issues that pertain to them and inspire them to create change in their communities.

For more information on this exciting opportunity contact Volunteer Coordinator, Megan Fullen at megan@theatreactionproject.org.
