Teen Arts Council


Teen Arts Council (TAC) is a group of paid teens from the Boston area that serve other teens. In TAC, our work focuses on addressing social issues and introducing teens to the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston (ICA) and art in general. We feel that art is a form of expression as well as a tool for activism.

We organize events throughout the year to connect with teens. This includes our seasonal Teen Night-- where we organize a night of art-making and youth performances. We also organize The Current which focuses on socio-political issues that affect teens in Boston.

We deeply value all ranges of experiences, backgrounds, and perspectives. It is not necessary for all applicants to be artists. We are looking for activists, organizers, thinkers, designers, promoters, and more. All teens who are excited about engaging with other teens through the arts are encouraged to apply! Applications take 5-10 minutes to complete after you register for an account, you will be directed to the application questions.
