Why do we need a TA Pay Rate Calculator?
We hope the calculator will act as a catalyst for the field. If we understand what a teaching artist ought to be paid, we can begin, as a field, to work towards a livable wage, stabilizing and strengthening the work teaching artists do in arts education, creative youth development, and arts in community, across the United States.
We at TAG are well aware that these rates may be currently inaccessible to arts nonprofits, however we believe that all teaching artists should have a living wage.
Learn more about why we created this calculator (and how it works) in our blog post, here.
