What's Coming Up
Tara, alongside Annalisa Dias and Anna Lathrop of Groundwater Arts will be presenting a seminar at Bard College on January 20, 2020!
The climate crisis is the most pressing issue of our time. In this session, Groundwater members: Annalisa, Anna, and Tara, will discuss the intersections between racial justice and the climate crisis, specifically water access, using Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s teachings as the foundation. This session will provide hands-on, proactive tools students can take back to their studies and carry with them well into their academic careers.
Tara is excited to share that she is a 2020 Cultural Capital Fellow with First Peoples Fund!
With their support, Tara will be meeting with elders, transcribing their stories, and writing a new play! Additionally, she will be offering playwriting workshops to Natives who live in Seminole, Mvskoke, and Cherokee Nation. The goal is to use theatre as a way to preserve cultural teachings and family stories for generations to come, and she is honored to have this opportunity and project supported by First Peoples Fund. She will be in community with the 2020 fellows in March in Minneapolis. Stay tuned for the progression of this amazing project!
