Teen Council

Do you know a student with a passion for art and museums? Encourage them to apply for the 2020-2021 Teen Council!

The Mississippi Museum of Art is seeking a group of dynamic high school students for its Teen Council. Over the course of the academic year, the group will meet and work with MMA staff to help shape the direction of how the museum engages with young audiences. Participants will learn about the museum collection, explore local arts-focused events and venues, meet artists and creative professionals, and plan every element of the Museum’s Teen Night, all while forming relationships with other like-minded teens in the Jackson-Metro Area. This is a fun and exciting opportunity for arts, history, and culture enthusiasts who seek to gain leadership and project-management experience, all while working with museum employees in a professional setting. The program is open to students enrolled in grades 9-11 for the 2020-2021 school year and will meet every other Monday evening from 4:30-6:30 PM. The program dates follow the school calendar and consider holidays and other breaks.

To apply, students must fill out the application and send it to Merry Barnes at mbarnes@msmuseumart.org by August 21st. For more information, contact 601-965-9909.
