Apply to be on our 2018-2019 team!

Dear current or prospective TAG Team member,

We are so excited you are interesting in getting involved with TAG (or continuing to participate)! At this point, if you have no clue what TAG is, you can find more information through our site or by emailing us with any questions (teenartgallery@gmail.com).

In preparation for next year, we are beginning to assemble our team. We are looking for a team of dedicated teens who are interested in working together to organize and curate galleries throughout the year. Please read about each position at the bottom of this page, then fill out the application form. While board members should live in the NYC area, there are plenty of ways for non-NYers to get involved (submitting art, becoming an ambassador, etc.). 

Please fill out the form below by September 21st. We look forward to reading your applications and building an amazing and dedicated team! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Best,

Isabel, Natasha, and Surya.
