National Gallery of Victoria’s Teen Council
The National Gallery of Victoria’s Teen Council (NGV Teen Council) is a group of students from Melbourne who share an interest in art. NGV Teen Council meets once a month and contributes ideas, co-design, plans and delivers NGV teen programs, such as the Art Party and workshops.
Year 9 student, Venice, participated in the 2020 council with 11 other students from across Victoria.
‘The experience in the team can strengthen communication, teamwork, time management, organisational and planning skills,’ Venice said. ‘Through this experience you can learn more about career choices in art and gain volunteer hours to add to your resume.’
The Teen Council also works with the NGV to develop video series the NGV Collection. Council member and Year 9 student, Venice, spoke about the work of Petrina Hicks, and the exhibition ‘Bleached Gothic’. You can watch Venice’s video Here
