Final Friday is a free, public, monthly event for teens, hosted and developed by the Teen Council at the Nelson- Atkins Museum of Art. Every month we feature a different event with a different theme in mind.
We’ve had open mics, cultural celebrations, and film screenings that correlate to featured exhibits or other public events and festivals hosted by the museum.
It’s a great way to meet other teens from all around the Kansas City MO/KS area. We offer light refreshments, activities or performances, and sometimes feature guest speakers/visitors! Whatever the theme is, it’s always a good time. Come check it out 6-9 every last Friday of the month!
Teen events at the Nelson-Atkins are adult supervised but designed for autonomous exploration of art and ideas by teens aged 14-18. Younger, middle-school-aged youth are welcome to participate as long as they are comfortable away from parental supervision and around the social dynamics of older teens.
