Call for Teen Artists

The 2022–23 Teen Forum is organizing a collaborative event showcasing teen artists’ work based on the theme surrounding. Please apply by February 5, 2023 to be considered.

About the Teen Forum

The Madison Museum of Contemporary Art (MMoCA) is pleased to host the 2022-23 Teen Forum program—an opportunity for teens to get a hands-on introduction to a career as a museum professional. The Museum is currently accepting applications for the 2022-23 cycle.

The Teen Forum will consist of a small group of 9th-12th graders, ages 14-18, in the Madison area who are interested and passionate about all kinds of art, including traditional and nontraditional art forms. Under the guidance of MMoCA’s Education and Curatorial staff, the teens learn how to conceive, organize, and curate a teen art exhibition, as well as develop educational programming to complement the exhibition. The Teen Forum will have the autonomy to build a meaningful and relevant arts program at the Museum, and will be exposed to a diverse array of careers within the arts. Members will meet in-person at MMoCA for 3 to 6 hours per month and will be paid a stipend. Eligible teens may participate for two years.

Applications closed on Friday, September 16, 2022. Applications will reopen in early Fall 2023.
