Christine Kroger is the Founder and Executive Director of Neighborhood North Museum of Play, a children’s museum project in Beaver Falls that grew up out of a need for more equitable education in Beaver County. She spent two decades in the education, public library, and non-profit spheres leading teams, developing innovative solutions, and working collaboratively between sectors within our region. Her main areas of focus are children and families, community development, and creative placemaking initiatives, with especial focus on programs that promote greater equity, elevate justice, and integrate the arts.
For the past few years, she has been focused on play and its potential to foster equity in our learning ecosystem. Christine believes that museums are spaces where curiosity and novel learning and making can occur and where a shared language and understanding can emerge that unifies rather than divides.
Christine is the mom to three boys, an avid reader and creative, and serves on several boards in her County.
