The Teaching Artist Institute (TAI), under the visionary leadership of Founding Fellow Sis. Kim Poole, is sponsoring its 2018 TAI Tour to Ghana. A number of Teaching Artists from the United States, Ghana and several Diaspora nations are participating in a variety of workshops, discussion groups and performances as part of the annual celebration of Ghana’s independence and Ghana Music Week.
The TAI Tour is described in the following two PDF documents. They may take a minute or so to load, since they are several pages in length and include a number of photographs that describe the activities as well as introduce you to the Tour Participants and operators.
The following PDF document describes much of what you can expect from this TAI Tour, including a brief introduction to Sis. Kelley Settles, your TAI Tour Guide; schedule for the Tour; application, immunization, financial and visa requirements; responsibilities of participants and tour operators; and payment coupons. More information on the Teaching Artist Fellowship, which participates in the TAI Tours, can be found in this companion post.
Also included in this article is the Report on the 2017 TAI Tour to Ghana, featuring some of the events that occurred during the 2017 Tour and brief biographies of the 2017 TAI Tour participants.
