The PASEO Partners
The PASEO accomplishes its goals through collaboration with other organizations and individuals. Here’s a thank you to these visionaries, presented below in random order. Please support them. And thank our sponsors.
Taos Fall Arts Festival
This 42-year-old festival is The PASEO’s parent! It was through a $5000 seed grant that The PASEO began in 2014.
Taos Center for the Arts
TCA is the site of The PASEO’s visitor center for the 2016 festival.
This youth program, developed by Agnes Chavez, is a series of educational workshops that allow students to collaborate with PASEO artists exploring STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) in their art-making process. An artist is placed in every middle and high school in Taos. Teacher and students work with the artist for up to one week prior to the festival, then perform/install their work live at The PASEO. The PASEO is the perfect platform for students to use these tools to play, explore and imagine a better world.
Co-director Matt Thomas founded this design practice for interdisciplinary design, research, and community and educational programming in 2010.
