ABOUT THE CENTER
The center was conceived as a permanent space to showcase Guyanese heritage, to encourage creativity among Guyanese youth in Brooklyn and beyond, and to support intergenerational dialogue. It also offers training and learning opportunities in the creative arts. The center also hosts exhibitions, displays, and performances.
The center advances GCA’s objective to be an important hub for the study and celebration of Guyanese heritage and creativity.

• MO BRAFF PERFORMING ARTS PROGRAM:

THE MUSIC PROGRAMS: Ages: 6-35
Provide a high quality, flexible music education program for all young people interested in music: piano, tabla, sitar, African drums, flute, trumpet, violin, saxophone and other instruments, as well as chorus. Students will have the opportunity to play with and learn from the best musicians in the diaspora. This is also an opportunity to pass on our musical traditions to a younger generation.
• DIGITAL PRODUCTION: Ages: 18-35
