About Cool Culture

OUR MISSION

To amplify the power and voices of families and historically marginalized communities through increased engagement with art and culture within and beyond cultural institutions.

WHAT WE DO

Since 1999, we have collaborated with families, schools, artists and museums to ensure equitable access to cultural resources, to harness art and culture as tools for creative expression, and to educate, create awareness, strengthen communities, and propel social change.

HOW WE DO IT

We accomplish all this by partnering with:  50,000 African, Latinx, Asian, Arab and Native American (ALAANA) families and families from historically marginalized communities with small children; 450+ income-eligible New York City schools (public, charter and early childhood centers); 90 premiere NYC cultural institutions (museums, zoos and gardens)
