“LCE’s Teaching Artist Development Labs couldn’t have landed at a better time at this early stage in my career. Their influence on my understanding of what one has to embody and employ as a teaching artist continues to be substantial. They posit a culture of optimism, not only in the ways that they nurture the different inquisitive and creative minds, but they also state loud and clear that teaching artistry is not something you just do on the side. It is not a role for someone who hasn’t made it; rather, it is a career of great rigor, responsibility and influence where those who support the politics of inclusion, diversity and transformation find themselves changing the spaces in front of them.”

Former Teaching Artist Development Lab Participant

“The LCE Teaching Artist Development Labs are the most important new training opportunity in the U.S., probably in the world—it stands on the leading edge of the field and is a high-impact way to advance the work of Teaching Artists, from beginners to advanced professionals.”
