Cultural Liaisons are the teachers, directors and family service staff who take primary responsibility for connecting participating Cool Culture families with NYC's cultural riches.
Cultural Liaisons work with Cool Culture's program staff to cultivate interest and create excitement about the program; play a key role in engaging parents; and serve as a source of information about Cool Culture programs and cultural institution partners. Cultural Liaisons have access to professional developing and networking events.
Cool Culture Fair is a day of workshops and panels bringing together cultural institution partners with educators.
Cool Culture's professional development workshops are run by museum educators and professionals with expertise in early education.
Each workshop focuses on a different theme and takes place at some of New York City's best known cultural institutions. This provides education partners with the chance to become familiar with institutions throughout the five boroughs.
We offer professional development workshops geared toward community based Child Care, Head Start and Universal Pre-Kindergarten programs; and workshops for Title I schools.
Cool Culture's professional development, workshops and training sessions for educators provide Cultural Liaisons with the opportunity to explore one of our partner museums, develop new strategies for engaging families and exchanging with colleagues about best practices.
