What we believe

Emani headshot at TAP The Artists Project

We believe no artist should ever be held back or be unprepared to live their dream because do to lack of funds for photography for headshots. We believe that artistry and the power of creativity are universal. We believe we can leave this world a better place and so we work with brands that giveback to the environment or humanity and invite them to share our journey by supporting artists and arts and entertainment for a better future. 

About TAP


The Artists Project is a unique experience in Los Angeles where artists from different genres come together to collaborate and express their creativity. Artists rarely get the opportunity to work with other artists in a non-structured, spontaneous, supportive environment. At TAP, amazing talent from the acting, beauty, dance, music, and fashion worlds immerse themselves in a creative environment. As brands more and more are choosing experiences and personal involvement for consumers, offering this opportunity for access to top people in the industry with built-in media exposure is powerful and exciting. TAP is very committed to supporting and giving back to the community by continuing to offer services free of charge to all artists with a focus on struggling artists.

Support comes from business and social minded executive with brands and causes  that understand the value of building relationships with both established and emerging artists. Please visit www.gotapla for more info on the universal promo code GOTAPLA.
