ABOUT JAMAICA CENTER for ARTS and LEARNING (JCAL)
The Jamaica Center for Arts & Learning (JCAL), founded in 1972, is a multidisciplinary arts organization based in the diverse community of Southeast Queens. JCAL has historically supported the creation and presentation of art by local, emerging, and established artists. JCAL devotes its mission to offering quality visual, performing and literary arts, arts education, and artist programs to encourage participation in the arts and to contribute to the cultural enrichment of Queens and the Greater Metropolitan area. Under JCAL’s management is the performance venue (the former First Reformed Dutch Church) Jamaica Performing Arts Center (JPAC), which showcases local and national artists and performers.
JCAL and JPAC are housed in landmark buildings owned by the City of New York and are partially supported with public funds and ongoing general operating support provided through the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs with support from Mayor Bill de Blasio, Queens Borough President Melinda Katz, the Queens Delegation of the New York City Council, and New York City Council, Councilmember I. Daneek Miller. JCAL receives programmatic support from the Greater Jamaica Development Corporation and Resort World Casino New York City.
