Tennessee

Tennessee’s artistic heritage and cultural assets are among the richest in the nation. Tennessee is a hub of creative innovation, technology and performing arts, a state where classic meets cutting edge. The Tennessee Arts Commission is the statewide partner connecting artists and creatives with Air programs. With a focus on rural and Appalachian communities, TAC is eager to partner with Air Collaborative to better serve these communities. Air’s programs align with the Commission’s strategic plan by incentivizing collaboration, supporting community vibrancy through the arts, and by investing in initiatives that improve quality of life for Tennesseans. Since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, the TAC has assisted Air Collaborative with testing virtual Air Shift Workshops and facilitator training. The testing has been successful. Both Air and the Commission are ready to help rural Appalachian communities empower their citizens through productive partnerships between business, government and the arts.
