Teen Arts Leadership Summit

October 14, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Chicago Cultural Center

On Sunday, October 14th, Urban Gateways and the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) will host the Teen Arts Leadership Summit. As part of the City of Chicago’s Year of Creative Youth (YOCY), the Summit is a one-day event celebrating the role that young people play in the leadership of Chicago arts organizations. This summit will provide a chance for teens to come together to exchange ideas, share experiences, and explore creativity, all with an arts focus.

Teens: Attend the Summit!

Are you a Chicago-area teen who is either a member of a teen or youth leadership council at a Chicago-area arts organization or interested in arts and leadership? Join teens engaged in arts organizations and programs across Chicago for an exciting day celebrating creativity and leadership. It’s free, light breakfast and lunch are provided, plus you’ll get some cool giveaways! Teen registration is OPEN!

Teens can also submit to show work in our teen visual arts gallery, and teens attending the Summit can sign up for an open mic to close out the day.

Register here for #TALSummit2018!

Congrats to Tallulah, the young artist who won our logo design contest! The logo in the flyer above is her design.
