The Noguchi Museum’s Teen Advisory Board [TAB] is an after-school paid internship for high school students. Each year, TAB interns advise the Museum on how to better serve teen audiences and plan projects that promote dialogue and inclusivity at the Museum.
TAB interns become immersed in the Museum and the work of Isamu Noguchi through tours, activities, and behind-the-scenes conversations with Museum staff. Through experiences with art, participants reflect on their lives and the cultural values of our society to develop the vision of the Board. Previous TAB cohorts have created projects such as community art installations, curated exhibitions, teen nights at the Museum, and published books.
TAB interns are paid a $500 stipend for the school year, receiving $250 at both the midpoint and end of the program. TAB meets every Thursday from 4:30–6:30 pm, November through May. High school students who are interested in joining TAB must complete and submit the TAB Application no later than Thursday, October 31, 2019. During the 2019-20 school year, TAB meetings begin on November 14, 2019, and conclude on May 14, 2020.
