Teen Night at KW|AG

Nine teens from across Waterloo Region came together to form the KW|AG Youth Council in March.  Since then, we’ve been busy writing, drawing, cutting and pasting a collaborative zine and planning our Teen Night event on June 12!

The event is open to all secondary school-aged youth, and will include button-making, cupcake-decorating, interactive art activities designed by Council members and the launch of the Council zine, which will be available to take home.  KW|AG’s Emotional Blackmail and Situational Comedy exhibitions will be open, as well.  Oh, and there will be pizza, of course!  Did I mention all of this is FREE?  Drop in any time between 5 pm and 7 pm to check it out and make some art with us!

For information on present and future KW|AG Youth Council activities, “like” the Council Facebook page.

 The Council will be starting up again on October 2, 2012.  Meetings occur twice a month throughout the school year to work on new gallery programs including teen workshops, art exhibitions, publications and more! 

The Youth Council gives teens aged 14-18 (grades 9 – 12), the chance to learn more about the art world, earn community volunteer hours, and make a difference for other teens in their community.  For information on joining , contact Emily Gove by email at egove@kwag.on.ca or call 519 579 5860 x 227
