TAO musicians, artists, board and volunteers are passionate about their commitment to bring music, arts, healing and hope to our neighbors. Since 2004, Tidewater Arts Outreach has brought invaluable community resources through artists, instructors and performers to engage creatively and meaningfully with our audiences.
Tidewater Arts Outreach programs and volunteers create dramatic changes for people at more than 60 facilities throughout Hampton Roads. Art classes offer engagement and inspiration. Musicians share songs that unlock memories and create smiles. Dance programs bring out the youth and vitality in many. Week in and week out, Tidewater Arts Outreach programs share the transformative healing power of the arts, and reinforce the importance of our work.
The demand for our services grows daily, and there are waiting lists of places to serve and artists who want to serve. In 2009, Tidewater Arts Outreach, through its artists and volunteers, reached more than 5000 people through 230 programs in shelters, hospitals and nursing homes.
Your support means we can continue to bring inspiration, healing and hope to thousands of people we serve each year.
