TAPpy Hour

With nearly all the world at once absolutely shut down and more connected than ever, thanks to the magic of the Internet, The Arts Partnership decided to launch a new program, TAPpy Hour. Join us every Friday at 4:44pm on our Facebook page for a livestream conversation and/or art making opportunity with the incredible arts leaders, arts organizations and artists in the Metro who are finding ways to create art and share it with the world through this unprecedented time of social isolation. Grab your favorite beverage and come along as we continue to find good ways to #supportlocalart. We hope you’ll take the time to learn some new things about the arts sector in our very own community, and if you like what you see, invite your  networks to watch them, too. And here’s a fun challenge: why not donate what you would have spent at an actual happy hour to the organization or artist whose work you are enjoying every week?
