The tART collective functions as a contemporary feminist support structure for a group of artists in New York City, who are committed to exploring the intersections of visual art and public engagement as well as participating in post-graduate studio visits. Since 2004, the collective has used its exhibitions as a platform - to fundraise for Doctors Without Borders and Creative Time, to launch 'zines and present workshops, panel discussions and collaborations. When the collective expanded to its current maximum size in terms of logistics, members began to facilitate workshops teaching other artists how to set up their own groups. In 2011, tART members presented on the collective at the College Art Association conference in NYC (February) and Open Engagement conference, Portland, OR, (May.)
