We are not accepting proposals from teaching artists at this time.

Teaching artists at national EdTA events are recognized as experts and leaders in the field, and get to work with students and educators from across the country, and around the world. They play an integral role in fulfilling EdTA’s mission of supporting and training theatre students and educators.
