Dairy Arts Teen Council
Are you an artist, writer, musician, thinker, and/or community builder?
The Dairy Arts Teen Council is an active space for youth interested in community building, public programming, and the day-to-day operations of an arts and cultural organization. In this program, teens express and discuss ideas and create art relating to issues affecting young people today. Through the planning of events and community engagement programs, members gain real-world experience. In addition to meeting and talking to Dairy Arts performers, artists, and staff, the Teen Council promotes youth leadership in the arts and culture sector.
Ideal candidates are high school students entering grades 10, 11, and 12 in fall 2023 who are eager to:
Dream up, organize, and lead programs for other teens to engage around art, music, film, and theater
Make friends in a positive, arts-inspired environment
Learn how a professional art center books and plans events
Create and interpret art, music, theater, and film
Make the Dairy Arts Center more accessible and relevant to student audiences
Meet weekly from September through May for discussions, brainstorming, and planning sessions, as well as special insider tours and activities.
