Dearest TLA Community:
Please join us for a community conversation on Sunday, December 4, 2022 about what comes next for the Transformative Language Arts Network.
Re-Visioning TLA in the World: A Community Conversation will be led by TLAN founder Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg and members of our board of directors.
We invite you to join us in reimagining and re-envisioning the future of TLAN - consider how you might be involved, in whatever big or small ways that are possible for you. Re-Visioning TLA in the World: A Community Conversation is free and open to the public, and will take place online via Zoom. A Zoom link will be sent to all registrants the day before the event.
As always, at this moment, we are reminded of the power of words, especially in this time of rising challenges to democracy, attacks on our beloved BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ communities, political turmoil, and war and the climate crisis.
We honor the poets, journalists, writers, novelists, songwriters, playwrights, and other wordsmiths who risk their very lives to speak truth to power around the world. Your voices matter, your words have power, and together, we can effect meaningful change by listening deeply to each other's stories, and speaking our truths.
We invite you to join us.
To the power of words,
PS Don't miss the chance to save big on all our 2023 classes - we've got an amazing line-up of talented transformative language artists teaching for us, with new and powerful offerings.
We bring together and lift up individuals and organizations that promote forms of the spoken, written, and sung word as a tool for personal and communal transformation.
We offer a certificate in Transformative Language Arts Foundations, an introduction to TLA in theory and practice with a focus on ethical work, community networking, and TLA in action. To learn more, go here.
