With a renewed and expanded commitment to community engagement, the Museum collaborates with a diversity of cultural partners to present community-responsive projects that deeply engage local audiences where they are. Over the next few years, the Museum is working to deepen our local roots through inHarlem, a dynamic set of collaborative programs in our neighborhood. As the Museum prepares to construct our new home in our current location, we are excited to work with a variety of partner and satellite locations in Harlem, including New York Public Library branches, Maysles Cinema, the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, and more to continue our groundbreaking exhibitions, thought-provoking conversations, and engaging art-making workshops.

Community Advisory Network
As the Studio Museum looks ahead to our 50th anniversary and building project, we seek to strengthen our roots in the local community, and both broaden and deepen our public service. An integral component to achieving these goals, the Studio Museum’s Community Advisory Network is a cohort of local residents, teachers, parents, and representatives from social service providers and community-based organizations in Harlem. Through quarterly convenings, we engage our neighbors in exploring dynamic ways that the Museum can continue to serve as a vital resource for this diverse and ever-evolving community. Click here for more information on the Community Advisory Network.

Neighbors Night Out
Neighbors Night Out is a program in which the Museum partners with local community members to present socially-engaged projects designed by and for Harlem. With the help of the Program Proposals Portal, the Museum is proud to support our neighbors in bringing their ideas to life.
