Participate In Our Programs
We're always on the lookout for teens to feature in our projects. Let us know if you or someone you know would be a good fit! Please note that unless otherwise stated, all opportunities are for teens (ages 13-19) of color only.
Refocus/Social Media Feature
Have your artistic journey and artwork featured on our web-series/social media and blog! We're interested in teen artists of color who are passionate about art and have inspiring stories to tell. Interviewees and any connected arts organizations, depending on whether they are selected for a web-series or social media feature, may receive publicity on our YouTube, blog, and social media channels.
If you're interested in being featured or would like to nominate a teen, click here.
We're excited to announce our collaboration with Seattle's TeenTix, a nonprofit dedicated to reducing barriers to youth arts access, to present our mentorship and performance opportunity as part of the 2020 Teeny Awards. Teen artists of color are invited to apply to the Summer Arts Mentorship to have the opportunity to workshop or create a new work with the guidance of a professional artist/mentor of color. Teens will work within a cohort of peers and receive individual feedback and guidance from their mentors over a five week period. Their artwork will then be showcased at the Teeny Awards on October 10-11, 2020. This is a great way for teens to better their craft, build connections in the arts community, and present their art!
Applications for the mentorship program are now closed. However, if you would like to share their work with the Teeny Awards audience, they can still do so! We are running a general submissions pathway, where all teens, regardless of race, can apply to showcase their artwork at the event. Learn more here.
This project was supported, in part, by a grant from 4Culture.
We are excited to partner with Siblíní Journal, an international magazine dedicated to supporting youth voices and creatives. Together, we are launching a new micro-issue featuring the work of artists and writers of color. If you are interested in submitting work - such as film, visual art, or writing - for possible publication, we look forward to hearing from you!
