TeAda is incredibly humbled by the National & Local impact we’ve made this year, but at this time in history we must be more vigilant and take direct action towards protecting communities from being dehumanized. TeAda’s community focused arts programming combats the negative messages that are perpetrated about immigrants, refugees and communities of color.
TeAda’s Local & National Impact is driven to support communities and artists of color, immigrants, refugees and QTBIPOC (Queer, Trans, Black, Indigenous People of Color).

Below you can read our 2018 Impact Report that gives an overview of our work in 2018.
Together we can continue to help communities heal through the arts.
