The Children’s Creativity Museum (CCM) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping children ages 2-12 build creative confidence through interactive, multimedia art-and-science experiences. Our mission is to nurture creativity and collaboration in all children and families. We believe that creative expression, innovation, and critical thinking are core to fostering the next generation.
CCM has always been led by a director of color. Our Board and staff are roughly 50 percent people of color. We see ourselves in many historically underserved communities and we actively reach diverse audiences through participation in museum access programs, free outdoor festivals and community events, and free field trips for Title 1 schools and community-based summer camps.
