A Teen Night Wanderland

By Naomi Estevez | July 7, 2016

“If you don’t know where you are going, any road can take you there.”

Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

Take a journey with the Teen Arts and Culture Council (TACC) at our Wanderland Teen Night this July 14 from 6:00—9:00 PM on the High Line at the West 16th Street Chelsea Market Passage!

Last year, the members of TACC successfully produced two events on the High Line with dance workshops, slam poetry, collaborative murals, and appearances from amazing youth performers from The Door. More than 800 teens came out to celebrate self-love at the No Filter Teen Night (pictured above).

This July, we want to celebrate the power of imagination and our collective desire to wander the world. Inspired by the magical journey in Lewis Carroll’s
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and the Wanderlust High Line Art group exhibition on the High Line, we designed our Wanderland Teen Night to promote outlets for creativity, travel, and path-finding for the teens of New York City. We hope to bring teens in the community closer together with an unforgettable experience!

Wander to our event for an evening of food, screen printing, transformative face painting, a photo booth, storytelling workshops lead by the Five Boro Story Project and more!
