CAMH’s Teen Council is accepting new member applications for the 2023–24 academic year!
High school students in grades 10–12 are invited to submit applications to join this collaborative group of young arts enthusiasts. Members are provided with opportunities in leadership, visual literacy, and life skill development. During weekly meetings, Teen Council members are introduced to the inner workings of museums and to the dynamic arts community in Houston.
For the upcoming year, Teen Council will create public programs for Fall 2023–Spring 2024. Once interviewed and accepted, all Teen Council members become paid employees of CAMH and are required to attend weekly in-person or virtual after-school meetings every Tuesday from 4:30–6:30PM.
Teen Council is for artists and all types of arts enthusiasts. You do not need to be an artist to apply.
The deadline to submit all applications is March 27, 2023 at 11:59PM CST. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis.
About 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 virtual zines, exhibitions, fashion shows, film screenings, listening parties, music festivals, and poetry readings.
Teen Council is made possible by generous support from H-E-B, and additional support from Mark and Mary Ann Miller, Louisa Stude Sarofim, and Dillon Kyle and Sam Lasseter.
Contemporary Arts Museum Houston is funded in part by the City of Houston through the Houston Arts Alliance.
