Index is proud to announce new innovative learning initiatives with creative opportunities for young people from all parts of Stockholm. Based on long-term engagement and active participation, the programs focus on learning in all its forms. After 40 years as one of the key contemporary art spaces in Stockholm, Index has fully committed itself to learning as a key aspect of our activities, opening to new and harder-to-reach audiences.

The Index Teen Advisory Board, which offers paid positions for eight young people from across Stockholm and Uppsala, is an integral part of our programming. The board actively supports decision-making, evaluation, and in organizing events. The aim is to bring together a group of young people with differing cultural backgrounds, languages and life experiences and reflect together on the role and potential of culture today, and implement ideas into the agenda of the organization.

The 2016/17 Index Teen Advisory Board members are: Ahmad Shaffai, Joanna Ptak, Jon Aagaard Andersson, Kajsa Frisk, Kaltum Gure, Ram Alshibli, Razak Abdul Muhebu, and Tilde Lee Björk.

The board participated in Index activities for one year and also contributed to Index’ Summer Waterfront Fiesta, I HIMLEN ÄR ALLA LINJER BLÅ on Saturday 13 August, 2016. The festival was made by and for young people, with live music, poetry readings, food trucks and arabic calligraphy workshops, and more. Please visit our blog and see what we have done over the year!

Applications for the 2017-18 Index Teen Advisory Board are now closed.
