What is a TMTTR Project?
• For a given project TMTTR partners with a host arts organization. A critical aspect of this partnership is the collaborative, joint development of a project plan which is a coherent reflection of the mission and specific goals of the partner organization and TMTTR.
• There are two core components of every TMTTR project:
One component is a multinational, multidisciplinary exhibition addressing water-related themes. Select artists from the host country are invited to exhibit their artwork alongside the work of the TMTTR artists. Media in TMTTR exhibitions can include: painting, drawing, photography, prints, video, computer-generated imagery, music and sound, sculpture, installation, and performance.
The second core component of all TMTTR projects is a community outreach program, done in partnership with the project’s hosting institution. Outreach programs generally take the form of a workshop during which water-themed art is created; this artwork is then included in the TMTTR exhibition. Outreach project participants have included grade school, high school, and university students, as well as senior citizens, blind people, immigrants, homeless people, and people with mental disabilities.
• TMTTR has 18 permanent members, from the following countries: Brazil, Chile, Cuba, Egypt, Finland, France, Lithuania, Germany, Jamaica, Nigeria, Pakistan, the United States, Uruguay and Zimbabwe.
