TANA

programs

Taller Arte del Nuevo Amanecer (TANA) is a collaborative partnership between the Chicana/o Studies Program at the University of California, Davis and the greater Woodland community. TANA offers a fully functioning silkscreen studio, Chicano/Latino Arts exhibition space, and a teaching center for the arts. Through exhibiting, printing, and teaching, TANA cultivates the cultural and artistic life of the community, viewing the arts as essential to a community's development and wellbeing.

The Chicana/o Studies Department at the University of California, Davis has a history of scholarship and promotion of community health and empowerment. TANA is a continuation of this history, developing an authentic and organic link between UC Davis and the greater Woodland community. The City of Woodland is the most natural partner for the community-based arts instruction and scholarship offered through Chicana/o Studies at UC Davis. The human resources from the community of Woodland and institutional resources from UC Davis will collectively promote the role of art and culture as a viable community-building strategy.

There are four primary elements to TANA:

- Gallery and Exhibition Space
- Taller Classes and Community Arts Workshops
- Art and Graphic Design Services
- The Atelier
