Teen Advisory Group is Back in Session

TAG students participating in a workshop by artist duo Chiachio & Giannone.

The Teen Advisory Group (TAG) is back in session and ready to go digital!

Engaging a diverse group of teens from across San Diego County and Tijuana. TAG brings high schoolers together to learn about the museum as a site of citizen participation, the behind the scenes, education, and exploration of social issues through the lens of contemporary art.
 
It is undebatable that our world is changing and it is the current youth who will live out the consequences of humanity’s impact on our society. How do we work together to not only create awareness but to transform our communal practices for an empathetic future. What role does/can art have in these urgent and dynamic times?
 
Under the guidance and mentorship of MCASD staff, artists, and educators, TAG members will delve into the topic of Art & Activism, exploring ways artists have used art in protest and social justice movements, and how youth can too. Participants will have the opportunity to connect with local community artists, collectives, organizations, and other youth. 
 
This program is an academic-year-long. This year TAG goes digital and will be meeting two times a month via Zoom and using Google Classroom: on the first and third Tuesday from 5:00-7:30 PM, beginning October 10 through June 2020.
 

Applications are now open for 2020-21 academic year.

Applications close Wednesday, October 14. Parents and students selected will be notified on Friday, October 16.
 
Parent/Student Informational Session: Tuesday, October 20
