Cool Culture

Curators for Educators and Curators for Families Launch


Cool Culture’s Curators programs launched this month, with guest facilitators from Cooper Hewitt museum guiding conversations about the role of art and design in healing communities.

Throughout the spring, Curators for Educators workshops will introduce partner educators to We Are All Curators, our framework for putting into practice the notion that art belongs to all of us. They will have access to Seminars and Dialogues to uncover ways to unite art and storytelling in classrooms, and cross-share best practices for partnering with families. Curators for Families engages cohorts of children, caregivers, and educators to deepen awareness of the role of art and culture in changemaking, and ignite activism through neighborhood-based action projects.

All Curators resources, such as this pictured activity for centering emotions, are shared with educators for them to revisit and adapt for their classrooms. Featured cultural institution partners will co-facilitate sessions, including Museum of Arts and Design, New Museum, Queens Museum, Brooklyn Children’s Museum, and more!
