NEW PHILADELPHIA - The Tuscarawas Arts Partnership (TAP) will host its second ArtsThrive Program at My Museum Tattoo in New Philadelphia between the months of March and May. Returning for a second time, the ArtsThrive Program focuses its learning objectives on marketing topics for artists and businesses.


The Tuscarawas Arts Partnership received a grant award from the Ohio Arts Council with the goal of providing resources for artists to help their careers or businesses advance in Tuscarawas County and beyond.


This year’s series of three workshops were decided based on feedback from artists who participated in the first ArtsThrive series, and from a poll offered on Tuscarawas Arts Partnership's website and social media. They are as follows-


Marketing is Storytelling: Creating Your Main Character - Saturday, March 7, 9 am - 12:00 pm.

Stand out: Know Your Audience and Your Competition (Saturday, April 4, 9am - 12 pm.

Marketing Strategy: Where to Put Your Efforts (Saturday, May 2, 9 am - 12 pm.


Tuscarawas Arts Partnership's ArtsThrive Program is made possible in part by state tax dollars allocated by the Ohio Legislature to the Ohio Arts Council (OAC). The OAC is a state agency that funds and supports quality arts experiences to strengthen Ohio communities culturally, educationally, and economically.


TAP's mission is to create and support environments that awaken, empower and inspire. TAP's vision is to promote a visible, sustainable, local arts culture through advocacy, education, and funding. This can be accomplished by encouraging the arts to thrive across Tuscarawas County, and encouraging partnerships between the arts with other art, business and community agencies to create positive impact and benefits throughout the county.
