Teen Summer 2017 
The People Make The Bronx: Heart Of The Bronx
Teen Summer explores the stories behind community-based organizations and their impactful work. This year, teens spent three weeks investigating Bronx arts organizations. They met with dedicated artists, activists and administrators to learn how they contribute to the richness of arts and culture in our community. After conducting a series of interviews, teens created a video and poster publication to share their findings with the wider public. 




Teen Council is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, Pierre and Tana Matisse Foundation, and Anonymous.
