Brooklyn Children's Museum

Log Number: MA-249753-OMS-21

The Brooklyn Children’s Museum will implement “We Are #BrooklynKids,” a two-year project to identify and foster creative talent in the local community and direct resources to culturally specific arts groups and artists that reflect the neighborhoods the museum serves. In partnership with three community-based organizations (Friends of Marcy Houses, United for Brownsville, and Cool Culture), the museum will engage with approximately 100 Central Brooklyn families (including approximately 400 children) to participate in exhibit and program planning. In partnership with guest curators based in Central Brooklyn, the museum also will present six one-day community festivals that will include performances and other activities. The project will provide an opportunity for participating families to bring their visions for museum programming to life through meaningful, memorable experiences.
