Guild Hall is currently looking for local teens interested in advocating for the arts — and getting paid for it.

Founded in spring 2017, the Guild Hall Teen Arts Council (GHTAC) is a collective of young East End 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 the local teen community. This is the only paid teen arts education program in the region

Teens, ages 14+, interested in developing skills relating to contemporary art (visual, literary, and performing), leadership, community engagement, nonprofit management, and museum/theater practices are encouraged to apply. GHTAC is a paid academic yearlong position. Members must be available to meet every Tuesday from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m., and attend various programs throughout the year.

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 the community develops, and social understandings evolve, Guild Hall is looking to incorporate and encourage young voices to lead the way.

For more information on the program, contact: Corey Jane Cardoso, GHTAC coordinator, at cjcardoso@guildhall.org or Anthony Madonna, The Patti Kenner Fellow in Arts Education, at amadonna@guildhall.org.
