The first activity of TCA was the Launch, an organizational meeting, held at Stanford University on August 23-25, 2013. We had an amazing meeting. Members of the taiko community were present to represent themselves as well as a community member who they interviewed. Additionally, input from over 1400 respondents to a Taiko Census informed the gathering. Together, these community representatives participated in discussions to shape the governance structure, guiding principles, and initial activities of the TCA. This event also served to kick-off the planning for the next NATC. Discussion notes, photos, and videos are posted on the Launch Meeting page.
We will also continue to welcome ideas and suggestions from those unable to attend this meeting. Please stay tuned for more information on how to get involved!
Thanks to everyone who attended. We look forward to a bright future for TCA!
