Yes! If you want to add yourself in more than one category, you can! You will need to use more than one email address to create two different profiles. Once you create two profiles you can easily move between them and stay signed in to both at the same time.
If your region has a teaching artist directory or arts partner directory, connect us! We will work with your region to add existing data to the TAG map. That way it can be shared outside your region for a full picture of the breadth of the work of teaching artists and arts providers across the United States. But do go ahead and add yourself too!
This is a tricky question in some ways: Many people define “programs” differently, and they can change from year to year, too. Some organizations have 3 main initiatives which are deployed at 30 different school sites. Do you list all 90? Or the three main initiatives? We’d vote for the 3, and add as much information about the reach and scope as you can. Please feel free to contact email@example.com if you have further questions.
TAG uses an annonymizing function to protect your personal information. Your home address will not be shared with anyone, and your map marker will place you somewhere in your neighborhood, but not directly at your address. If you would like to protect your location even further, we suggest using the address of an organization you work with, to give a sense of where you are doing work. Barring that, you can use a local public building such as a post office or city government office. Remember, you will be placed in the vicinity but not exactly at, whatever location you list.
TAG is dedicated to protecting your personal information, and is proactively updating our map and website so that we will be able to adhere to European data laws, which are stricter than those in the United States. The aim of this map is to make an interactive public directory for our entire field, so the information you see displayed in your public profile is searchable by anyone. You get to choose whether to add an email address or phone number to your public-facing profile. If you have further questions or concerns, please let us know!
