About West Harlem Arts

Future Forward

West Harlem Arts is a collaborative, community-based initiative from The Children’s Art Carnival (CAC) and Centro Civico Cultural Dominicano (CCCD). In the wake of the devastating Covid-19 pandemic, the organizations joined forces to present a virtual exhibition series celebrating the resilience of local artists from West Harlem and the surrounding community. Organizing the exhibition has allowed us to take a great step towards supporting and collaborating with a new generation of artists as well as offer creative, civic, and cultural programming for community development. CAC and CCCD were able to convene an outstanding panel of judges that helped us to organize a show that reflects the diversity of talented creators living and working in our neighborhoods. We look forward to cultivating partnerships and collaborations with other like-minded communities in the near future.
