What Is TASK?
TASK is a collaborative, improvisational art event that can be planned
and played by anyone, anywhere, with
any budget. All you need is a designated area, and a variety of inexpensive materials. TASK can be held in
classrooms, auditoriums, theaters,
or anywhere you like.
There Are Two Simple Rules:
1. Write down a task on a piece of paper
and add it to a designated task box.
2. Take a task from the box and
interpret it any way you want, using
whatever materials are available.
When your task is completed, write
a new task and place it in the task
We encourage as many teachers and
students as possible to learn more
about TASK, hold TASK parties in
your schools and communities, and
share your stories. Starting this fall,
SchoolArts, Art21, ArtEd 2.0, and
Oliver Herring are planning a series
of events including a large TASK
party at the 2012 NAEA convention
in New York and a National Week
of TASK in September 2012.
