Standing Together
 
 
 
 
Our heart goes out to all the ones who are struggling right now.

So many people have been affected in a very real way and even if we feel
 
helpless sometimes, we feel blessed to be part of our wonderful Houston
 
Texas community filled with so many compassionate and generous souls.
 
Let’s unite forces and rebuild together…Let's spread the light.
 
 
 
 
 
 
"The Eyes of the Northside" had a successful unveiling on June 21st at AVENUE. Yes Prep Northside students and teachers, team members of AVENUE, and The TFAA team came together to help celebrate the new community mural. 

The Eyes of the Northside was created by the From A Space To A Place students as an invitation for the Youth of the Northside to cultivate Hope and positive actions in their community. 

In case you missed the unveiling, you can visit the mural at any time! 
It's located in the Avenue homeownership parking lot at 672 Quitman St. Houston,TX.

2017 Houston Arts Partner Conference
 
 
 
 
TFAA will be hosting a workshop and speaking at the 2017 Houston Arts Partners Conference, "Better Together: Building Community Through the Arts," on Saturday September 16, 2017.

The HAP Conference focuses on arts integration in the classroom, with over 1,000 attendees and presentations by some of the most renown educators in the world. During the conference, TFAA will introduce the From A Space To A Place holistic approach to educators from across the state for them to adopt into their own curriculum.

            “Arts integration supports meaningful learning in the arts AND academics. The arts             build community and develop empathy. Participation in the arts helps students             develop creativity, sharpen critical thinking, and find their original voice. Innovative             partnerships reach ALL learners through the arts. No matter our background, the             arts help us understand our common humanity.”
