Kaleideum, Inc.

Capital support to fund creative and innovative exhibit spaces in conjunction with the construction of a new building to house a new entity named Kaleideum – Learning Reimagined. Kaleideum is the result of the 2016 merger between the SciWorks science museum and The Children’s Museum of Winston-Salem. The museum will have exhibits and programming that fuse STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), literacy, performing arts, and arts education into an integrated approach to learning that will be tailored to be inclusive of financially-disadvantaged children, students and families that have not been typically served by predecessor organizations. Trust support will help to insure that an equity and inclusion lense is intentionally considered as a normal part of the museum's ongoing operation. They intend to occupy the facility in the fall of 2020.
