You have your dream team, you have your timeline, and you are ready to embark on some capital campaigning, but wait, there’s more! Let’s discuss accessibility and processes to make sure the design of your project is inclusive and future-proof. It’s one thing to build a space for your organization but does your organization comply with the ADA? How about for your neighbors and local community? Are you considering all who may be walking through your door? Who is your organization not yet serving that your new home could welcome?
In this session of Building HueSpaces, we will cover physical accessibility and how important it is to plan your space with all audiences in mind. We will speak with leaders in accessible design and organizations who are already in the midst of this work or have just finished.
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 the AIANY 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 with generous funding from the Ford Foundation.
