TAC meets the first Saturday of every month on-site at the NCMA during the Triangle Pop-Up market. TAC has a booth to participate in and collect for the Crochet Coral Reef community project led by twin sisters Margaret Wertheim and Christine Wertheim. Satellite Reef projects have taken place around the world, and the NCMA is a host site. Community members are invited to crochet parts of a large coral reef installation.

The deadline to submit an online application has been extended. We will invite selected applicants for an interview with Museum staff and some of our current TAC members. Don't wait to apply. Do it today and share this with your friends!

Please contact Angela Lombardi, director of outreach and audience engagement, at angela.lombardi@ncdcr.gov for more information.

We are no longer taking applications for the 2021–22 school year. Please check back in late summer 2022 to apply for the 2022–23 school year.
