Queens Teens offers youth opportunities to gain exposure to a cultural institution while developing their own creative interest and passion for the arts and social justice. The teens become part of a close-knit peer network that fosters personal and professional growth. This year we will be accepting teens from all across New York!
In this program youth learn about how contemporary art and social justice intersect. Teens will have the opportunity to create art, discuss social justice issues, and attend various workshops and events. The group will meet weekly via Zoom during a mutually agreed upon time throughout the year for art-making, skill-building workshops, and presentations by museum staff and various organizations.
Teens will also have the chance to apply to be a part of a Queens Museum Teen Council once a part of the Queens Teens program.
After showing good attendance and participation, teens may receive the opportunity to work in various programs and events.
Teens may participate in Queens Teens over multiple years with the aim of building on skills developed and gaining confidence as they grow in the program and progress throughout high school.
We will be accepting applications for the 2020-2021 cycle beginning August 12 and ending September 30. Click here to apply.
