There is no better way to make use of the Tea Time network than to start your own chapter.
While our online communities provide insight into news, announcements, and info on the go, there is much to be said for the importance of face-to-face interactions. Tea Time is about looking for ways to enrich your education that are not strictly focused on your reel.
The concept is pretty simple — once a week, invite your peers together to sip hot beverages and chat about animation, but in practice, starting your own chapter gives you the opportunity to practice important soft skills such as:
Giving and receiving critique
Learning what it takes to teach others what you already know
Depending on your time and resources, you could also be learning about event planning, managing a budget, leading a team, and working directly with industry professionals in order to organize guest lectures.
Tea Time is a not-for-profit organization. This means we’re truly only here to help support you in your endeavor to make the leap from student to professional. (Furthermore, only active Tea Time members are eligible to apply to our annual scholarship!)
Only you know what your community needs.
