ABOUT COOL CULTURE

Founded in 1999, Cool Culture is a New York City based nonprofit that seeks 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. The organization currently partners with 50,000 diverse families, more than 400 early childhood centers and Title I schools, and 90 cultural institutions in New York City. Cool Culture encourages community members to use arts and culture to celebrate their cultural heritage and creativity, and to connect and build community in an increasingly complex world. We are building a movement of individuals and organizations committed to providing a more equitable future for families, tomorrow’s artists, art lovers and activists and communities.

Cool Culture programs operate at the citywide and neighborhood level. We support a network of families, educators,  administrators, museum professionals and artists in cultivating community, storytelling, relationship building, healing and activism through arts and culture. We are invested in finding innovative ways to connect with and engage the 50,000 families who partner with us as collaborators in the quest to bring the human right of art and expression to every community. We believe the exchange of individual diverse stories provides a larger narrative for addressing systemic inequities.
