Toronto Alliance for the Performing Arts (TAPA) Organization Overview
The Toronto Alliance for the Performing Arts (TAPA) celebrated its 40th Anniversary in 2021. Originally formed in 1979 and officially incorporated in 1980 as the Toronto Theatre Alliance (TTA), the organization continues to play a vital role in community building for arts organizations and arts workers alike. The TTA changed its name to TAPA in 2004, and became a leading arts service organization (ASO) to champion professional theatre, dance and opera, with an average annual membership of between 150 to 200 organizations.
TAPA is dedicated to listening and learning about the needs of these diverse members to effectively support their individual work, while also acting as a unified voice for the performing arts as a whole. Through a broad spectrum of partnerships and networks, TAPA has a proven track record of establishing new programs and services. TAPA is committed to advocating with all three levels of government to maintain and secure new funding to support arts and culture. In the time of the pandemic, TAPA demonstrated its expertise in the cultural ecosystem and the impact of its work was clearly evident and rippled throughout the sector. As a dynamic ASO, TAPA is a leader in building a strong and thriving creative sector.
