(Australia-Pacific Teaching Artist Network)

A network for teaching artists who live and work in the Australia-Pacific region. Teaching artists are practicing professional artists who use their craft to educate in schools, learning centres or in the community.

APTAN aims to create a network of teaching-artists in the Australia-Pacific region and bring about awareness of the critical and transformative nature of teaching artists’ work.

On this site you’ll find information about teaching artists, a directory of
professionals in the region, and information you can read to learn more about what teaching artists offer the community.
