KCC DEAI (diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusivity) focuses exclusively on the application of art for the development of marginalized and differently-abled persons, empowering them through self-expression and creativity. We continuously work with national and international experts in art, accessibility, and therapeutic training to build the framework for these engagements vis-à-vis art.
We believe ability depends significantly on the accessibility to resources, and we work towards making them available keeping in mind the diversity and differential needs of our audiences. An essential part of this is also the sensitization of our staff through regular training sessions. Through series of programs, presentations, exhibitions, performances, sensitization seminars, and workshops titled ‘Learn Togetherness’ we are consistently striving to ensure that KCC is an all-inclusive LGBT Queer-friendly art space.
With the theme Museums for Equality: Diversity and Inclusion, International Museum Day 2020 aims at becoming a rallying point to both celebrate the diversity of perspectives that make up the communities and personnel of museums, and champion tools for identifying and overcoming bias in what they display and the stories they tell.
