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. GHTAC Members are paid $12 per hour and 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. This is the only paid teen arts education program in the region.

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, ages 14+, interested in developing skills relating 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 attend various programs throughout the year.
