TCA Awarded Art Works Grant from the National Endowment for the Arts

NEA Award Letter

Over the Winter holidays, TCA received some very exciting mail.

Congresswoman Anna Eshoo from the 18th District of California took the time to congratulate TCA receiving a $10,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA).

TCA has been awarded a $10,000 Art Works grant from the NEA to support costs for this summer’s North American Taiko Conference planned for August.  The Art Works grant strives  “To support the creation of art that meets the highest standards of excellence, public engagement with diverse and excellent art, lifelong learning in the arts, and the strengthening of communities through the arts”. TCA is proud to have a project funded by this program and thank the National Endowment for the Arts for their consideration.

We are also thankful for our hard working volunteers who worked on and submitted this proposal.  Many thanks to Rome Hamner and Wisa Uemura for their work on this grant.
