TEEN SUMMER PROGRAM 2017

This summer the Bronx Museum Teen Summer Program visited arts organizations in the Bronx. We had the

opportunity to meet with their dedicated staff about the work they do and discuss their perspectives on the arts in

the borough. Local arts organizations act as centers for people to come together and enrichen the arts and culture

in our community.

We invite you to watch our documentary video featuring interview highlights online:

Created in 2012, the Teen Summer Program researches community-based organizations and their impactful work.

Over the course of three weeks, teens engage with activists, administrators, and artists and learn how grassroots

organizations serve as vital local resources. Working collaboratively with museum educators, participants create

videos and publications to offer information about the services available in the Bronx and share their findings with a

wider public.
