Bronx Museum Teen Council

Bronx Museum Teen Council Teen Art Program at The Bronx Museum of the Arts.

The Bronx Museum Teen Council makes contemporary art and culture accessible to urban youth through a series of different platforms. Structured around the production of MuseCasts, video productions available on YouTube and MuseZines, a small publication, Teen Council is comprised of a group of high school students working closely with two instructors in the Museum’s Media Lab. Scheduled concurrently with the school year, this 8-month program provides teens with an open forum for the expression of ideas and dialogue on issues affecting young people, and the promotion of the Bronx as an important cultural, political and artistic force. The Bronx Museum of the Arts’ Education Programs and Teen Council is made possible with support from Pierre and Tana Matisse Foundation, Anonymous, The David Rockefeller Fund, Simón Bolívar Foundation, New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; Keith Haring Foundation, Robert Lehman Foundation; New York Yankees Community Council; and The Peter Jay Sharp Foundation.

Mission: The Bronx Museum Teen Council makes contemporary art and culture accessible to urban youth through a series of different platforms
