On Friday, July 30th from 5:30-7pm there will be an artist’s open house at Trinity Academy for the Performing Arts (TAPA). Located in the historic Theatre Annex Building of Trinity Methodist Church (393 Broad Street, Providence), TAPA is Providence’s new arts-integrated charter school for middle and high school students.
This event is for teaching artists in drama, music, film and dance who are interested in being Artists in Residence at TAPA. It is an opportunity to see TAPA’s performance spaces, meet the Artistic Director, learn about TAPA’s model of arts integration and ask questions about our current request for proposals for our next Artist Residency. TAPA is a fully arts-integrated urban charter school that opens on September 1 with a class of 34 7th grade students.
Please RSVP by Thursday, July 29th. TO RSVP and to receive a copy of the current RFP email Liz@trinityacademyfortheperformingarts.org
