Created for teens, by teens, NYC’s first Teen Arts Week is a celebration of the arts for teens in all five boroughs.

Dozens of cultural organizations will present hands-on artmaking events and performances for teens from May 13-19, 2019. All events taking place throughout the week are free and accessible to teens 14+ with a valid school ID. Educators are invited to bring student groups to Teen Arts Week events, which include poetry open mics, filmmaking workshops, dance classes, music improv jams and so much more! The week also features opportunities for teens to explore careers in the arts.
