The Teen Arts Council is a group of motivated high school teens that develops and promotes creative programming at the museum to connect teens to contemporary art and each other.
Who should apply?
We are looking for high school teens, ages 14-18, who are passionate about contemporary art and visual culture interested in working in a museum setting, enjoy working with their peers from diverse backgrounds and parts of the city, and can make a year-long commitment. The Council meets weekly during the school year; TAC members receive a stipend.

The Teen Arts Council is a group of motivated high school teens that develops and promotes creative programming at the museum to connect teens to contemporary art and each other. In its first year, the TAC organized and hosted several artist talks, a spoken word event, and a fun-packed Teen Night featuring a fashion show, karaoke, graffiti contest, and more. In the new ICA, the 12-member TAC will play a vital role in expanding programs and building a teen audience at the museum.
The ICA’s Teen Arts Council and Teen Nights are generously sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts.
