For Immediate Release:

On February 28, 2020, ONECommunity Museum (“OCM”) submitted a proposal to operate The Harley Clarke Historic House & Gardens, A ONECommunity Museum. The vision of the ONECommunity Museum is to expand upon the mainstream conversation of environmental sustainability to include and explore the concept of sustaining people and fostering community through programming and exhibits, with a core mission of:

Locally developing global citizens through sustainability education

The mission of OCM is to improve the community in the areas of wellness, education, sustainability, and health. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable. A long-term goal of OCM is to build a national network of community-based and facilitated museums, which offer public and equitable opportunities for experiential learning and relevant discourse in historically preserved properties.
OCM is a “Sustainability Museum,” with themes to include history, nature, culture, and social justice.
This museum is specifically designed to meet the current and future needs of the Evanston community. Outward facing, the collection, exhibitions and content will attract visitors into Evanston, while inward facing, the programming will strive to meet community needs.

Free for everyone, ONECommunity Museum invites those from all backgrounds to explore, create, and share their ideas.
