Our founding mission is “to advance public knowledge about the meaning of place, foster connections and understanding between people of diverse backgrounds, and inspire and reflect a culture of community participation through providing welcoming, well-researched, inclusive, and engaging educational experiences and resources to people of all ages and abilities.”
Turnstile Studio allows us to extend this mission beyond the tour programs we currently operate in New York City. We are always looking for partners and clients who share these values, and we seek to share the depth and breadth of our experience and expertise to support cultural sites, community-based institutions, economic development organizations, and other non-profits, in their efforts to more effectively engage the public through place-making projects, exhibitions, tours, and public programs.
Thanks to the diverse talents of our team, who combine decades of experience in a range of fields, our core competencies include:
- Storytelling techniques
- Research and content production
- Visitor services and engagement
- Accessibility for visitors with disabilities
- Cartography and graphic design
- Development and evaluation of tours and public programs
