Join Teen Artists’ Creative Oasis (TACO) founders Bella Kiser and Bella Masterson for an intergenerational panel about youth agency in arts institutions and how young people are organizing their own spaces.

Teen Artists' Creative Oasis (TACO) is a project started in 2014 by Bella Masterson and Bella Kiser dedicated to creating an inclusive space for local Chicago youth artists to display and perform their art on the web and at events. TACO was created for teens by teens to create spaces for youth artists to exhibit their artwork, outside of the typical school setting.
