Tell us a bit about yourself! Who are you? How are the arts part of your life? (We know this is a super nebulous question but be creative! We want creative people on the New Guard!) *
Why do the arts matter?
Why are you interested in learning about arts leadership? Why is it important for teens to be involved in arts leadership through advisory boards such as the New Guard?
A big part of the New Guard are the teen-initiated projects we work on together. The work for these projects happens outside of regular meetings through committees and is very important to the New Guardians who take part in them. What New Guard Committee are you applying for? Please choose one (it's hard to pick one but you gotta commit, at least for this app!) *
What is it about the committee you picked above that excites you and what additional ideas do you have for it? *
What art forms are you interested in?
Are you interested in a career in arts leadership?(We’re just curious! You don’t need to be interested in an arts career to be on the New Guard)
Anything else you’d like to tell us?
Feel free to upload any creative work you’ve done or anything else that shows us more about who you are (uploading additional work is completely optional!)
