Organizational Statement
The TeenTix Press Corps Program promotes critical thinking, communication, and information literacy through criticism and journalism practice for teens. Since 2006, some of the city’s most talented professional arts critics from The Seattle Times, The Stranger, Seattle Globalist, (and more!) have taught over 700 teens through workshops and intensives focused on arts criticism training. We have published over 500 reviews of arts and culture events that live on the TeenTix Blog. When the Press Corps re-launched in 2018 after a short hiatus, the updated program was designed to include racial equity and social justice priorities. The Press Corps has an explicit goal of disrupting systems of oppression within arts media that have kept marginalized voices out of arts journalism. Since our re-launch in Spring 2018, the Press Corps has trained 186 teens in the craft of arts criticism through out-of-school arts journalism Intensive Workshops and residencies at public high schools.
