Latin American Cultural Center of Queens
Building Multicultural Bridges for a United Ethnic Mosaic
The Latin American Cultural Center of Queens, Inc. is a comprehensive, countywide, incorporated, nonprofit organization for Hispanic art and culture. The Center was created in 1993 to maintain, promote and support Hispanic culture aiming to meet the cultural needs of the Latino communities of Queens. Throughout these years the Center has been building cross-cultural connections with other ethnic communities, cultural and educational organizations in the borough.
In response to the cultural, educational and artistic needs of the community, the Center provides high quality artistic and educational programs that are free and open to the general public. This programming includes:
*Arts Education: Career in the Visual Arts is an After-School and Crime Prevention program offered at Arrow Park and Community Center in Astoria, and the Renaissance Charter School in Jackson Heights.
*Cultural Events with dance, music and poetry.
*Special Events such as the celebrations of Women’s History Month, Hispanic Heritage Month, Posadas and Three Kings.
