Global History Timeline Project

ITAC is excited to launch The Global History Timeline Project, which will begin to write the history of our international field by creating a timeline of significant events from around the world.  Our field is known by many names – “teaching artist,” “community artist,” “social practice artist,” “artist in residence,” “citizen artist,” and more – but together we have one history.
