Triangle Emerging Arts Leaders, that group of young (or young at heart) folks working in the arts in the Triangle has taken a bit of a hiatus. But its BACK!
We are bringing back TEAL’s popular lunches, but adding a new element. Its easier to get away from the office when you are learning something…right! So, each TEAL lunch will now have a discussion topic and a discussion leader from the Triangle arts community. As always, TEAL lunch is also just a great time for networking and discussion of general issues facing arts leaders.
Here’s the info on this month’s lunch:
TEAL September Lunch and Learn
This month’s topic:
“How to build an audience – through social media,
collaborations & other crazy ideas”
Leading the discussion will be G. Todd Buker, Artistic Director of Bare Theatre. Commonly referred to as a “vagabond” company, Bare is a Triangle-based company that does not own its own stage/theater (which saves a lot of money!). In the last 5 years, the company has grown its audience tremendously through crowdfunding, social media, and collaborations that have enabled them to pay the artists involved! Todd will begin the discussion with a short talk on the topic and then open the floor for group discussion. Come ready to share stories on what has worked or what hasn’t for you, and to learn from each other.
Here are the details:
Where: RTP Frontier, Dive Conference room, 3rd floor
When: Friday, September 23
11:30 RTP Food truck rodeo opens in the Frontier parking lot. So, grab lunch there (come early, there will be lines!) or just bring a brown bag lunch!
12:00 Discussion begins
1:00 Official ending of discussion, feel free to stay and chat!
Who should attend?
The event is free, but help us make sure we have room for everyone by signing up here.Tags: arts community building, arts marketing, arts networking, Bare Theatre, RTP Frontier, TEAL, TEAL lunch, Todd Buker, Triangle Emerging Arts Leaders
This month, we are opening the doors and inviting everyone in to see behind the scenes at Triangle ArtWorks. Meet the people that helped us get off the ground in 2010 and those working hard today to keep us running. Learn why they are giving their time and talents to build this Organization to support you – the Triangle Arts Community.
Today, we introduce you to one of our “office volunteers” and our current Intern:
TJ McCain is a student at UNCW interning with Triangle ArtWorks this year. She is studying sociology, but has interests ranging from photography to design to social media. Mohini Uchil recently moved to the Triangle from New Jersey when her husband was relocated with MetLife. She has long worked in the insurance industry herself, and still does part-time, but was looking for a volunteer outlet in the arts to get more engaged in the Triangle community. She found Triangle ArtWorks through an Activate Good posting for Office Volunteers.
Both of these women are best described as “forces of nature”. They came into our office and, working with current office volunteers Lucy Gardiner and Cindy Hockiman (more on them in a future installment) began transforming it into an organized and streamlined, but crazy and fun place to be. Triangle ArtWorks is lucky to have these volunteers on board and working for the Triangle arts community!
Mohini and TJ answered my questions together:
Why are you both giving your time and talents to volunteer for Triangle ArtWorks?
We absolutely love volunteering for Triangle ArtWorks. It is a non-profit organization like no other in the Triangle. It has taken the idea of the starving artist and smashed it to bits. ArtWorks brings the entire arts community together, from the painter to the dancer, the designer to the sculptor. You name any art form and Triangle ArtWorks covers it. That’s what amazes and attracts us to this organization.
It has also been an incredible learning experience working with Beth Yerxa, ArtWorks Executive Director. With her knowledge of art and law, her many contacts or just her down-to-earth spirit, she has made Triangle ArtWorks a great place to work. We also love the personal satisfaction we get working with an organization with such an incredible impact on the arts community . . . it has been an exceptional experience. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for Triangle ArtWorks!
Both Mohini and TJ are getting the daily work done in the office, from keeping the site updated, to social media, to simple but necessary office tasks. Mohini is also our Partner Coordinator, working with our Partners to keep them informed and responding to inquiries or information from them. TJ is working on some long range projects about how to better use social media, such as Flikr, to serve our community, and providing support to TEAL and the Board of Directors.
TJ and Mohini are working hard to support the Triangle arts business community and doing it simply for a love of that community. Please share their enthusiasm and donate to help us continue our work.

Are you getting the support you need to grow as an arts leader?
What resources or programs do you need?
Come learn how others are finding support and help us look at ways to better support Emerging Leaders.
This article in the recent Americans for the Arts Emerging Leaders blog salon, caused several TEAL members to contact us and say “Are emerging leaders getting the support they need?” So…let’s talk about it!
Join us for a TEAL roundtable discussion about what pressures Emerging Leaders feel to grow, learn, and adapt their work, and how they are dealing with it. Talk to other Triangle’s young arts leaders about how and where they are getting the support and resources they need. Also, help ArtWorks identify unmet needs and help us brainstorm on ways to meet them.
Afterwards, join other Emerging Leaders and more “seasoned” arts leaders for networking, fun and perhaps a local beer or two!
Date: Monday, June 23rd
Time: 7 p.m.
Location: Mercury Studio 401 W. Geer Street Durham (behind & below Motorco)
The Game Plan:
6:30-7 Networking and Mingling
7:00 Roundtable discussion begins
8:30 Group adjourns to Fullsteam to continue discussion/networking
We will also be inviting leadership from other arts service organizations to listen to the discussion, so that we can have more minds and organizations involved in working on this issue.
Let us know you are coming! RSVP by email.

Triangle ArtWorks is working with a Core Group of local arts leaders to create a Triangle Emerging Arts Leaders Group. The idea is to create a networking group of “young” arts administrators that will meet periodically for discussion and networking, with a goal of not only helping the Group’s members learn from each other and some discussion leaders, but also to facilitate collaboration between them and their organizations.
What is an Emerging Arts Leader?
When is the first meeting?
The first meeting will take place on the “Fourth Friday” March 23rd at noon, at Shiki Sushi. If you are a Emerging Arts Leader in the Triangle, come out to meet your peers, share ideas and have a great time with other current and future leaders of the cultural sector. Each gathering will have a discussion topic, and we will look to our Core Group and peers to facilitate conversations. The first meeting will be an informal meet and greet, and we’ll also have an open discussion about future topics, locations for gatherings, and what experiences members would like to get out of participating.
How can you participate?
If you fit the above definition of Triangle Emerging Arts Leader, send us an email and we will put you on the Group’s mailing list. If you can come to the meeting on March 23rd, let us know so we can include you in the reservation!
See you there!
