Support the Tamalpa ArtCorps
We are dedicating this Crowdrise campaign to the ArtCorps program, a bold initiative created in 2013, consolidating our programs in service to vulnerable populations and communities in need in the US and worldwide.
Tamalpa Institute has run a number of powerful programs and has begun to research and design new programs in response to the identified needs and requests of diverse communities. To name a few:
Art and Dance programs for incarcerated women.
Training and workshops for educational leaders in the “deaf and hard of hearing” school system.
“Self-Portraits” – A workshop series for Latin American Immigrants.
“Bodying Home” –A workshop for the homeless population.
“Dancing for Peace” –A program for youth leaders.
As of today, most of the programs are facilitated by our graduates who volunteer their time and resources to work with the communities. Donation funds are critically important to the institution’s ability to continue the development and delivery of its ArtCorps program.
Tamalpa Institute, founded in 1978 by post modern dancer Anna Halprin and artist/ therapist Daria Halprin, is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing groundbreaking dance and healing art programs which serve individuals, organizations and communities around the world.
For over 35 years, our work has been taken to the silenced and repressed. We have seen over and over again that the arts are a powerful healing force, not just for individuals, but also for whole communities.
