Upstream Arts Teaching Artist and School Participants


Upstream Arts is hereforth declaring 2016-17 to be the Year of the Teaching Artist!

Artists are truly the backbone of our work and, we believe, some of society’s most important agents for social change and inclusion. This year, we’re celebrating the incredible work of our Teaching Artists, both within and beyond Upstream Arts programming, even more than usual through our website, social media, email newsletter, and some special live events, to be announced soon.

Join us by sending along some of your favorite experiences with Upstream Arts Teaching Artists! You can share on Facebook or Twitter (use hashtag #YearoftheTeachingArtist), send an email to [email protected], or call us at (612) 331-4584.
