Teen Advisory Council
Hello! We are the Teen Advisory Council, a.k.a TAC!
We are a diverse group of teens who have previously participated in ArtsConnection Teen Programs: TRaC, Student Art Program, PaaM etc…
Our mission is to put teens at the center of all of ArtsConnection’s teen programming. We help to represent ArtsConnection teens, brainstorm new teen programming, participate in community outreach, plan and run engaging events and initiatives for other teens, contribute to ArtsConnection’s blog The JAR, attend fun arts events on behalf of ArtsConnection, meet & collaborate with like-minded teens, and much more!
