About Teen Council

MoMI Teen Council is an active space for youth interested in media, museums, public programming, and the day-to-day operations of an arts and cultural organization. Through visiting-artist workshops, planning of large-scale events, community engagement, and site visits, members gain real-world experience in the hybrid craft of organizing and project management while exploring the history of the moving image. In addition to meeting and talking to museum professionals, Teen Council promotes youth leadership in the arts and culture sector.

To find out about upcoming events and news, please sign up for the teen programs newsletter.
