Opened in November 2018, the New York State Equal Rights Heritage Center is part of a series of Regional Welcome Centers established by Governor Andrew Cuomo to support the state’s growing tourism industry. Just a mile from the newly designated Harriet Tubman National Historical Park and a short drive from Seneca Falls, the Center highlights statewide attractions related to the ongoing struggles for equal rights.

To serve the Center’s purpose as a launching pad for visitors to explore New York State, we developed 4 types of interactive iPad kiosks that allow visitors to browse highlights by geographic location, navigate social justice milestones, and listen to songs and speeches.

We worked collaboratively with MTWTF who was commissioned by the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation to develop the content strategy, design, and media for a permanent exhibition, “Seeing Equal Rights in New York State,” at the Center.
