Turn Around Projects of the Arts is a not-for-profit organization that creates and maintains integrated arts projects, which promote reciprocal exchange in order to impact and strengthen communities. At the root of TAP's conviction is the firm belief that the arts are essential to human development and provide unique opportunities to engage, question and confront complex issues in our world. Music, creative writing, dance, theatre, visual art, culinary arts and photography are used to empower participants. We encourage all to find their identity as artists, educators and leaders. To date, TAP has executed 13 programs in four countries (Jamaica, Japan, Canada, India) with over 900 participants from around the world.
Two TAP team members will be in Jamaica from September 25th - October 6th in order to support the development and growth of the newly formed TAP Jamaica.
