Trainings and Workshops

PLAY TANK is committed to share its learning and practice with fellow artists, youth workers and educators. Our goal is to contribute to the growth of meaningful and creative community-based programming in New York City. Our team of PLAY TANKERS and mentors are currently developing a diverse menu of trainings that will launch in June 2013. We are also interested in working collaboratively with organizations or groups to develop tailor-made programs focused on their needs.
