cARTie: Connecticut's contemporary art gallery on the go
cARTie is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization bridging inequities in education and arts access across Connecticut, and bringing the museum field trip to schools and students directly. It reimagines the museum concept, deconstructs traditional models, and is committed to making sure Connecticut's diverse children feel represented and empowered. To this end, cARTie offers inclusive internship and exhibition opportunities to a diverse population of high school art students and provides critical museum-based learning opportunities that enrich and deepen early education and SEL, while meeting NCCAS and CCSS, to (Pre)K-2 students who otherwise may not have access to robust arts programming.
STATEMENT ON EQUITY
cARTie recognizes that many existing systems of power grant privilege and access to the arts unequally. cARTie amplifies BIPOC voices, and works to ensure that all children in Connecticut have equitable access to full and vibrant creative lives.
cARTie is fortunate to be founded and directed by individuals each uniquely qualified to bring the project to fruition. All bring an explicit interest in confronting inequities in quality arts education access across Connecticut and a unique perspective and set of ideas. Together, cARTie's leaders are committed to cultural equity and intentionally working to be culturally conscious, anti-racist and anti-inequity allies. As an organization, cARTie recognizes it is not an expert on issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion from within leadership, but it strives for a diverse Working Board that is reflective of Connecticut with time.
