Teaching Artist Hub

Teach. Learn. Heal. Connect.

A Hub for Teaching Artists & Aspiring  Teaching Artists 

The Teaching Artist Hub is an initiative of the partnership between The Connecticut Office Of The Arts and Oddfellows Playhouse Youth Theater. This space is created for artists by artists to have a platform of creative, diverse, community-building resources that uplifts the work they do in the community. We aim to support teaching artists to grow through workshops, panel discussions, mentorship, networking and affinity groups. This space is for those who already consider themselves as Teaching Artists and those that aspire to become professional Teaching Artists! All are welcome!

2024 Mentorship Grant

Applications have closed but stay tuned to see what our artists create!

Stay Tuned!

We are seeking teaching artists that have a passion to teach aspiring teaching artists what it takes to be creatives at their best. Mentors should have a skilled, experienced, background in their arts discipline and they should provide guidance, motivation, support and leadership towards a mentee. Mentees 18+ that are open to learn, be advised, trained or counseled by a mentor in their arts discipline are encouraged to apply. 

This grant will help you and your mentee create a workshop/project/event as a collaboration over the spring/summer of 2024.

The Teaching Artist Hub would like to offer CT Teaching Artists and their mentees an opportunity to receive a $2000 grant for the summer of 2024 so you can collaborate and create together!
