Teen Tix
Do you want to promote all-ages arts and get school credit at the same time? Teen Tix, an program that gives teens ticket discounts at 38 different arts organizations, is looking for some bright young minds to join its steering committee. You can be involved in creating content for the Teen Tix website and blog, meet leaders of various arts organizations, assist with innovative marketing techniques targeting youth in the arts, choose the winners of the annual Teeny Awards, and–of course–see lots of shows. This is a great opportunity to get involved with the local arts scene whether you are a dance, film, music, or theater aficionado. To be considered for the steering committee, an adult (who is not your parent) or fellow teen must nominate you by contacting teentix@seattle.gov.
