“Today’s teenagers will take over the world eventually. This new festival gives them a head start.”

The New York Times


NYC’s annual citywide celebration of the arts—for teens, by teens

Leading cultural organizations in all five boroughs will present free classes, workshops and performances for teens from March 2-8, 2020. Events enable teens to gain hands-on experience in different areas of the arts, engage with professionals in the creative industries, and explore pathways to future leadership within the context of the arts. Open to all NYC teens 14+ with a valid school ID. Educators are encouraged to bring student groups, both during and after regular school hours.
