About Cool Culture

Location:

80 Hanson Place, Suite 605, Brooklyn, NY 11217, US

Mission Statement

Cool Culture envisions an equitable society that values, embraces and is enriched by all cultures. Our mission is to amplify the voices of families and strengthen the power of historically marginalized communities through engagement with art and culture, both within cultural institutions and beyond

Description

Cool Culture is a nonprofit social justice organization led by and for people of color that for almost 25 years has brought together families, artists, cultural institutions, educators, and the wider New York City community across race and class divides. Our initiatives co-create more equitable access to culture with our partners, support family and community wellbeing and inspire social change. Across NYC we:

  • offer 50,000 families free access to our partner cultural institutions, multilingual programs, and resources.
  • support 1,000+ educators to use the arts to foster children's love of learning, build family engagement; and
  • support museum staff to make a difference to their communities

In our Neighborhood-based Initiatives, families tour cultural centers, critique exhibits, create art, and share stories. Annually families make more than 185,000 visits to partner museums annually; and increased cultural participation in their communities and homes.
