Teen Council

Join Teen Council!

The Crystal Bridges Teen Council is a teen-led group of creators/advocates with an interest in art and community engagement. We learn about art and the museum, plan events, collaborate with artists, work toward social justice, and create new ways for the Northwest Arkansas community to experience Crystal Bridges.

Teen Council meets once every week (on alternating Wednesdays or Thursdays) from 5 to 6:30 p.m. We are responsible for planning bi-yearly Teen and Tween Nights, as well as smaller pop-up programming. We communicate and keep up with each other via a private Slack account. To be a member of Teen Council, you must be able to attend at least one meeting per month.

Teen Council Application
Applications close August 2.
Group interviews will be held August 5 and 6.
