Applications for the NGV Teen Council 2020 are now open!
A group of passionate young people from across Melbourne make up the NGV Teen Council. The Council allows for young people to share their perspectives and contribute to NGV Teens programming for events, whilst gaining work experience with behind the scenes access.
NGV Teen Council is appointed each year from applications from high school students fourteen years of age and older. Members meet with NGV curators and staff, and contribute to the design, coordination, and promotion of programs for teens. In addition, they go behind the scenes at the NGV throughout the school year to learn and experience more.
