Queens Museum of Art/Communiversity of Inclusive Play

Wed, 2017-01-18 10:22 -- Don Ball

The Playground for All Children, located in Queens, is the first playground in America constructed to integrate children of all abilities. The Queens Museum of Art will develop and implement the Communiversity of Inclusive Play curriculum in partnership with City University of New York (CUNY) staff and students, as well as local families. The curriculum will include a series of guest lectures and expert-led workshops focused on equipping participants with knowledge in cutting-edge research in the fields of developmental psychology, special education, art therapy, and inclusive design. The museum will launch a new artist residency initiative to place an artist or artist collective at the playground.
