cARTie: Connecticut's contemporary art gallery on the go
Connecticut's non-profit mobile art museum
What Elementary School Principals Say
"What [cARTie] does is really great. Linking who the high school student artists are and our students' experiences of their art is incredibly unique. Introducing our students to these high school student artists is transformative and powerful to achieving and teaching about equity."
cARTie is a nonprofit 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 ELDS, NCCAS, and CCSS, to PreK-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.
STATEMENT ON ACCESSIBILITY
cARTie does not and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of its activities or operations. These activities include, but are not limited to, hiring and firing of staff, selection of volunteers and vendors, and provision of services.
