Teen Perspectives: The Sun sets on another year of PTAC

The 2017-2018 year was one of hurricanes and late starts. Our events included an open house event to welcome local teenagers and organizations, a night out on the town during Miami Art Week, an important educator workshop with necessary conversations about school safety, cosmic couture at SPACE PROM…and lots of snacking and gallery wanderings in between.

On our very last Thursday as a group, we sat down in the summer shade of Museum Park to bid adieu to our eight graduating members. We reminisced over extra-fancy-end-of-year snacks, talked about our next moves to faraway and not so faraway places, and Miami as home. Surprise guest Nadege Green came to join us and offer advice and inspiration about how she made herself heard and seen as a journalist, and how she effectively tells the stories of others. Each and every one of us walked away promising each other to reunite again as a group, same time, same place!
