Teen Council in action

Teen Council


Apply to serve on the Teen Council at Museum of the Moving Image. Our mission is to carve and shape an active space for youth interested in curating, public programing, and the overall day to day operations of an arts and cultural organization. Through visiting artist lectures, planning of a large-scale event, community engagement and site visits, members will gain real-world experience in the hybrid craft of organizing and project management; as well as exploring the history of the moving image. In addition to meeting and talking to museum professionals, you will be building strategies for outreach and taking leadership roles in collaboration with other NYC teens.

Applications for the 2018 program are now open. Please apply here. To find out about upcoming events and news, please sign up for the teen programs newsletter.
