Mission

A.C.C.E.S.S. Art Corp., Int'l.was incorporated in 1994 to mobilize a multi-cultural harborfest celebrating the diversified history of the unique Tall Ship Schooner Ernestina. From 2000-2004, we have produced 18 cultural documentaries, many aired on our series "Word That's Heard". Our programs have been broadcast via cable television in 11 New England communities. We are dedicated to profiling underserved while foregrounding multi-cultural contributions via oral history. Our preservation of maritime culture has taken place via the AHOY! after-school program. Maritime culture is the anchor of our region; maritime education is a large part of its future--and we are there at the advent of this movement. We have more recently contributed maritime art to a community mural capturing the city's harborfront panorama.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Our latest initiative has been partnering with sustainable groups to transform an abandoned urban court into a sustainable greenspace benefitting downtown residents, surrounding neighborhoods, and heritage tourism. Last year's "AHOY!" (art/history/oceans/youth) project--currently being redesigned as an out-of-school time program for '09-- served 17 5th graders from New Bedford's South End public schools. This area is underserved and ethnically diverse. We used the rich maritime culture and customs of the region to amplify self-esteem and self-awareness, to positively frame ethnic contributions, and to increase team building and communication skills. The beneficiaries were the students from at-risk and underserved neighborhoods, as well as the City which can groom them, via our program, as future candidates for maritime research.
