Did you participate in ITAC6, either online or in-person? Were you inspired by the people you met? Then apply for ITAC6 -7 Project Funding!

The hosts of ITAC6 and ITAC7, in partnership with the ITAC Collaborative, will support up to two projects that connect our current and future conferences between 2022 and 2024, and ‘advance the global field of teaching artistry' in effective and innovative ways.  We invite proposals from organisations or individuals who have a project plan that springs from connections made at, or is inspired by, ITAC6 and involves a partner from Norway.  

We intend to use these funds to provide support for ideas which may develop during, and after, our international gatherings. We know new partnerships form when we meet, and our aim is to support those developments. We will publish one open call at the culmination of ITAC6, which must include a Norwegian partner, where people can come to find support for their immediate ideas. Subsequently, we will publish a second open call closer to ITAC7, which can involve partners from anywhere, and where those ideas which are slower to crystallise can be proposed.

All projects should address the theme of ‘advancing the global field of teaching artistry’ and have a start date after January 2023. ITAC aims to support projects with a social impact goal, or which produces new models, toolkits or resources that have benefit to our wider sector. We are unlikely to support art making activities or projects which do not aim to enhance the professional development, or lives, of people beyond only the applicants themselves.For this, our first open call, all proposals must be international partnership projects with at least one Norwegian partner.


Each selected project will receive up to $US 6,000 in funding along with support, when needed, from the network of leaders connected to the ITAC Collaborative.  

Management of the project is up to those who propose it, and whilst ITAC is prepared to be the sole funder, it would be an advantage to secure additional sources of funding.
We expect the results of both projects to be presented at ITAC7 in Auckland in 2024.

For an example of previous conference-funded projects, you can read about Jeffrey Tan’s Teaching Artist Asia initiative, which received ITAC5 - 6 funding.
