Oklahoma Contemporary Teen Arts Council (OCTAC) is a diverse group of teens with varied backgrounds and experiences who are interested in exploring contemporary art, ideas and the creative process through collaboration and engagement with artists, curators, educators, community partners and the public.
OCTAC members spend an academic year planning, designing and facilitating ways to connect teens with Oklahoma Contemporary through gallery experiences, programs, print pieces, events and project generation. New Teen Arts Council members are selected every year to replace graduating seniors.
OCTAC meets during the school year (Thursdays, 4-6:30 p.m.) to develop projects with artists, community, staff and other teens. Food is provided for every meeting and teens get paid hourly!
Contact our Coordinator of Public Programs, Blair Summers, at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns.
