aka SURVIVAL KIT FOR TAIKO GROUP LEADERS
A series of focused online meetings to share personal experiences on topics that are not fun, but that are essential to running a taiko group. Participants are encouraged to share in their native language, with language support provided as necessary.
Meetings will NOT include discussion and problem solving – and serve primarily to connect you to other taiko professionals and give insights into different real-world approaches to group management. If you are not able to attend the meeting, or prefer to share your experience in writing, you can do so by email.
A password protected online space will be available which includes recordings of each meeting, a PDF document with experiences that have been submitted in writing for each topic, and space for participants to discuss, share ideas and resources, and to ask/give advice.
