What We Do
TAEP operates in the Charlotte Community to break the cycles of violence and trauma through arts opportunities which ignite change in vulnerable youth. Our vision is to provide a community that gives every child art experiences which broaden horizons, foster resilience, and build life essential skills.
We provide high quality arts programming, enrichment experiences, and social and emotional development for children in need of access to light, hope, equity and opportunity.
Our new location at the Visual and Performing Arts Center (VAPA) in Uptown Charlotte provides underserved children in our community with a safe place to express their creativity in an environment that promotes self-acceptance, awareness, and healing.
