In Spring 2015, teens in ArtsConnection’s Theater TRaC created monologues inspired by either their experiences or those of characters featured in plays explored during the program. Each week we will be posting a monologue. This week’s video features Jenny Zwigard. Enjoy!
Hey guys! How are you? Just reminding you that the Teen Advisory Council (TAC) deadline is on the horizon.
You may be wondering, What does TAC do?
Well, we’re high school ambassadors and consultants who work for ArtsConnection’s various teen programs! Would you be interested in:
- Planning events for teens, such as concerts and meetups?
- Attending fancy galas?
- Spreading the word about ArtsConnecton’s programs?
- Coming up with new ways to engage teens?
- Collaborating with peers and ArtsConnection staff members?
If so, then TAC is for you!
