Driven by your own passions and with contemporary art as a lens through which to understand yourself and the world, you learn to look critically at art, speak publicly as you share your own ideas about art with others, and participate fully in the life of the MCA as young leaders and ambassadors. In the second year of the program, you lead public talks in the MCA’s galleries for all visitors and organize an event at the MCA for other teens.

Teen Creative Agency (TCA) members document their Saturdays and reflect on their experiences in TCA at their creative agents blog.
