About CAMH Teen Council
Composed of young arts enthusiasts, Teen Council serves as the Museum’s vehicle for attracting the city’s teen population to CAMH and exposing them to the vibrant field of contemporary art. For council members, the group serves as a highly collaborative creative incubator that opens up opportunities for leadership, visual literacy, and life skill development. During weekly meetings, the council is introduced to the inner workings of museums and to the dynamic Houston arts community. Teen Council activities are decided upon by its members and can change from year to year, but past events developed by the Teen Council include art markets, exhibitions, fashion shows, film screenings, listening parties, music festivals, and poetry readings. Teen Council Members for the 2018–19 season are Madison Akindele, Isabel An, Jamauri Bagby, Karen Cheng, Gabriela De Castro, Mia Fares, Sophia Ghauri, Jonah Gleitman, Emily Goll-Broyles, Ashton Haq, Hannah Holliday, Zak Pham, Olivia Vargas, and Hannia Yeverino.
