Haitian American Museum of Chicago
Log Number: MH-251592-OMS-22
The Haitian American Museum of Chicago (HAMOC) will create a new education program for students in grades 6 to 12 aligned with arts and social studies curriculum standards in Illinois. The museum will hire an educator to assess HAMOC’s current education program and develop a new program to improve upon its challenges. The program will include afterschool activities, classroom visits, field trips, specialized lectures and presentations, artist-led workshops, and resource guides for teachers. As a result of this project, HAMOC will provide free to low-cost educational opportunities to underserved communities, broadening students’ understanding of the diversity that exists in Chicago and throughout the global Black Diaspora, as well as increasing their understanding of racial and social justice issues.
