TeenTix works in collaboration with The Colorization Collective, a group led by young people (who are also TeenTix alumni!), which promotes diversity in the arts, to present a mentorship program for teen artists of color. Teens work with their mentors and a cohort of peers to hone their craft and develop new work.

We are currently hosting a Winter 2022 M-TAC Cohort focusing on Music and Writing, which runs January-June 2022. The Music cohort is being taught by mentor AnthonyArlene! and the Writing cohort is being taught by mentor Serena Chopra. Stay tuned for information about where to see these artists' work in June 2022.

Past cohorts include a Summer 2021 cohort focused on Visual and Performing Arts, and the inaugural M-TAC cohort in Summer 2020. The inaugural program consisted of two cohorts of Visual Arts and one cohort of Performing Arts. To see the work created by each cohort, check out their digital galleries!
