TAID (Teaching Artists Identifying with a Disability) is a group by and for disabled teaching artists, teachers, and educators. Founded in 2020 by three Pink Umbrella Theater Company teaching artists, the goals of TAID are:
To allow our members to enrich ourselves professionally and personally through the practice of mutual support and care
To share knowledge and resources among disabled educators to help us succeed in the classroom despite systemic barriers encountered by disabled educators
To ensure more disabled educators enter and remain in the fields of education and arts education. Lack of support is cited as a key reason these talented educators do not enter or remain in the field.
To build strong community, professional networks, and a culture of empowerment among disabled educators
We provide captioning, audio descriptions throughout the meeting, and visual agendas. ASL interpretation can be provided upon request (please email firstname.lastname@example.org). Please contact us with any other access needs or concerns.
