About us

Founded in 1999, Cool Culture is a NYC-based nonprofit that harnesses arts and culture, social justice principles, and partnerships with community stakeholders - families, community-based organizations and schools, and cultural institutions - to improve outcomes for economically challenged children and families, and to strengthen communities. Cool Culture’s interdisciplinary work is informed by cultural organizing, family engagement and arts education.

Cool Culture serves 50,000 families, 90 cultural institutions and over 400 public schools, Head Start centers, and other community-based preschool providers, working in partnership to increase cultural equity, creative citizenship and to strengthen communities. Last year alone, as a result of initiatives co-created by Cool Culture and its partners, more than 185,000 Cool Culture parents and children walked through the doors of participating arts and cultural institutions.
