As we move forward through designing your new brick and mortar space, let’s also consider how you can make the most out of your investment in our organization. How can you ensure sustainability not just from a climate perspective, but also in the longevity of your organization? 

In this day-long convening of the Building HueSpaces series, we will be considering sustainability from all angles and definitions as we come together with the AIANY Cultural Facilities Committee, organizations of color committed to the sustainability of fellow orgs of color, and more. 

Culminate this series with us as we think about the long term usage of physical arts spaces and celebrate the power of collaboration.

Building HueSpaces is a series that centers the creation of museums and other arts enclaves founded and led by Black, Indigenous, Asian, Latine, and all People of Color. Created through partnership between Museum Hue and American Institute of Architects (AIA) NY Cultural Facilities Committee, this five-part series highlights topics such as assessing capital needs for your organization, capital fundraising, building your capital project team, accessibility as a foundation for your project, and more. Designed to provide greater insight into how these spaces were acquired and their capital projects developed, it demonstrates the critical need for greater racial equity and representation within NYC’s built environment and arts landscape. Through case studies of select NYC-based arts entities this series will provide a step-by-step toolkit to support other arts entities founded and led by arts and cultural leaders of color who are seeking guidance on how to attain a brick and mortar of their own.

Building HueSpaces stems from the research findings and recommendation in the HueArts NYC Brown Paper report led by Museum Hue, which highlights a greater need in investing in place as a long-term strategy for Black, Indigenous, Asian, Latine, and all People of Color arts stability and thrivability.

This series is made possible due to generous funding from the Ford Foundation.
