Teen Arts Council

About Teen Arts Council

Founded in the Spring of 2017, the Guild Hall Teen Arts Council (GHTAC) is a collective of young creatives representing and celebrating a wide range of experiences, backgrounds, and perspectives. As employees of Guild Hall, GHTAC Members work within the institution to curate public programming, advance their own creativity, and progress Guild Hall’s outreach and relationship to our local teen community.

Guild Hall was founded “to be a gathering place for the community where an appreciation for the arts would serve to encourage greater civic participation.” As our community develops, and our social understandings evolve, Guild Hall knows that the best way to continually grow our mission is to incorporate and encourage young voices to lead the way. 

Teens, age 14+, interested in developing skills related to contemporary art (visual, literary, and performing), leadership, community engagement, non-profit management, and museum/theater practices are encouraged to apply. 

GHTAC is a paid academic-year-long position. Members must be available to meet every Tuesday from 3:30–5:30pm, and are eligible to participate in weekly apprenticeship & mentorship hours with Guild Hall Staff & Community members. Once accepted into the TAC, you are a welcomed member until your HS graduation.
