The Jamaica Center for Arts & Learning was established in 1972 and sees some 28,000 members of the community participate in its programs each year. Over the course of its history, JCAL has nurtured a steady stream of cutting edge artists, opened up new educational horizons for several generations of Queens residents and inspired thousands of children to take an active interest in dance, theater, music and other forms of artistic expression. A recognized cornerstone of the community, JCAL is now christening a state-of-the-art performance venue. The long vacant and forgotten First Reformed Dutch Church of Jamaica has been transformed into the Jamaica Performing Arts Center. JPAC will be a showcase for local, regional and national artists and performers. We are excited to embark on this new chapter as we present our first season at the new Jamaica Performing Arts Center.
All that we do for the community, we do not do it alone. These programs are only possible with the support of individuals like you. Help us continue our efforts to present great performances, broaden our services and provide opportunities for emerging artists. Supporting JCAL is easy, rewarding, and there are multiple ways to become involved!
