Just a few short years ago, social media didn’t exist and yet today many organizations could not see themselves without it. With social media, Theatre Action Project (TAP) is able to connect with many different people from all over Austin and around the world. TAP is also able to brand itself as different from everyone else while at the same time showcasing the organization, its teaching artists and the great things TAP is doing for community kids through its social media platform. Not to mention that social media allows TAPsters to share valuable content in many different formats! So follow us on Twitter, check out our blog posts, articles and videos — then you’ll be just as excited as we are at being a part of the TAP movement.
