Join BkM Teens for a variety of free art and activist events by and for teens. We offer programs and opportunities to connect year-round, all free and geared towards young people ages 14–22. For the most up-to-date information, follow us on Instagram.
Note: Until further notice, all programs will take place online.
Teen Nights 2021 | Fridays, 5–7 pm | Zoom
Inspired by our special exhibitions and planned by the Teen Night Planning Committee, Teen Nights are free, large-scale arts events grounded in art and activism. In June, celebrate all things Pride with our annual LGBTQ+ Teen Night, planned by InterseXtions: Gender & Sexuality members. These events are Zoom Webinars with a high-quality lineup and interactive community through the chat.
Soul Sessions | Wednesdays, 5–6:30 pm | Zoom
Our monthly Soul Sessions connect the heart, mind, and community online with an easygoing meetup. Your BkM Teens hosts invite participants to interact with cameras and mics on, with discussions and breakout rooms.
Flyday Fridays | biweekly Fridays, 3 pm | Instagram Live
Join us on Instagram Live biweekly for teen-led discussions, activities, and resources that are relevant for teens both locally and globally. These live conversations cover a range of topics—from environmental racism to surviving COVID-19 as an LGBTQ+ youth—and take a variety of forms, featuring discussion between two fierce and knowledgeable teen staff members, or with an established artist, community leader, and/or topic expert.

Real talk–museums can look and feel unwelcoming to young people, especially young people of color. Over the years, BkM Teens have created resources to help make looking at art, talking about art, and being in museums more accessible for people of all ages, classes, races, abilities, and languages. Brooklyn Museum is our museum. To explore some of these topics on your own, or with friends, check out these resources created by and for teens:
