This year we’re trying something new; we’re combining the Teen Arts Pass Teen Council and the Teen Arts Leadership Summit Advisory Committee to create ONE awesome group of young leaders that will serve as the youth voice for teen-centric programming at Urban Gateways (including TAP + TALS!).

The Council is responsible for ensuring these programs best serve Chicago area teens by providing program and partner feedback, planning teen events, creating recruitment strategies and promotional materials, and more. The 2020-21 Teen Advisory Council meets virtually from October 2020 through June 2021. We are thrilled to be working with this group of passionate and dedicated teens.

Our thanks to the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) for partnering with us on Teen Arts Leadership Summit programming!
