Support creativity in WV
We seek to create a culture and sense of place that values creativity of all expressions and sustains artists and communities.
TFA approaches our work in a holistic manner by offering programs designed to support artists at every stage of their development. Through fellowships and professional development training we foster emerging artists, assist mid-career artists, and showcase master artists. By developing a strong statewide ecosystem, we unite and connect artists with opportunities that support their creative practice and nurture cross-sector relationships with the aim of keeping creativity alive in our state.
Our organization’s efforts take us to communities both large and small across the entire state guided by the goal of helping artists realize West Virginia as the best place to advance artistry and craft a living from their creative practices. We believe that creative innovation is a vital piece for diversifying our economy.
