Created in 2005, the Bronx Museum Teen Council makes contemporary art and culture accessible to urban youth through a series of different platforms. Structured around the production of MuseCasts, video productions available on YouTube, and MuseZines, a small publication, Teen Council is comprised of a group of high school students working closely with two instructors in the Museum’s Media Lab. Scheduled concurrently with the school year, this 8-month program provides teens with an open forum for the expression of ideas and dialogue on issues affecting young people, and the promotion of the Bronx as an important cultural, political and artistic force. I co-taught and ran this program between 2007-2013.
