What is the DMA Teen Advisory Council?
The DMA Teen Advisory Council, or T.A.C. for short, is a group of highly motivated high school students who help shape the direction of how the museum engages with youth audiences. The Teen Advisory Council works closely with staff members at the DMA, as well as local artists and educators, to create and host workshops, programs, and events for their fellow teens. As a Teen Advisory Council member, you will:

+ Develop innovative, interdisciplinary programming for museum visitors of all ages.
+ Serve as an ambassador for the museum to the community.
+ Build leadership, project management, and public speaking skills.
+ Work directly with museum professionals and working artists.

How do I join the Council?
Students must submit a complete application by August 19, 2019 to be considered for the Teen Advisory Council. The application process is highly competitive. Here's what we look for in applicants:

+ Applicants must be at least 14 years old and have completed 8th grade or the equivalent to be considered.
+ Applicants must be able to commit to attending two planning meetings per month on Thursday evenings.
+ An interest in art and art history required, but we love getting applications from people who have other interests too.
+ We give preference to students who are looking for ways to get involved with their community, and may not have a ton of extracurricular activities on their resume.
+ Preference will also be given to applicants living in Dallas county attending Dallas ISD schools.

Use this application to help us get to know you! Council members spend a lot of time together at the Museum, so it's helpful when we can get a snapshot of your personality. TL;DR: Be honest, be concise, and follow the instructions given on the application.
