Implementation of a 3,500-square-foot permanent exhibition exploring the diversity of identity through religion, history, and art.

Our City: Building Kindness and Empathy, a 3,500 square foot permanent exhibit at Boston Children’s Museum, invites children and their caregivers to think deeply about issues faced daily in a diverse society. Envisioned as a collaborative and dialogue-rich experience, this exhibit offers a welcoming, multisensory environment where families with young children can connect around music, food, family traditions and beliefs, visual art and design, history and political thought, and in doing so, surface questions of identity, cultural and social diversity, bias, and equity. Humanities scholars from the disciplines of religion, art, history, music, and philosophy have enriched the exhibit content, approach, experiences, and aesthetics. The Our City design team is translating their depth of knowledge into innovative methods for addressing the complex themes of identity, multiculturalism and diversity, and equity in ways that are meaningful for children 4-10 years old and their caregivers.
