The Guyana Cultural Association of New York, Inc.
A non-profit 501c3, was created in 2001 to document, showcase and celebrate the multiple roots of Guyana’s cultural heritage.
Our signature events and the programs at the Guyana Arts & Cultural Center are the vehicles through which the Guyana Cultural Association of New York, Inc., support the study and execution of Guyana’s rich multi-ethnic heritage and advocate for the preservation of this heritage. They also provide an opportunity to celebrate Guyanese achievements and to encourage intergenerational dialogue.
Our signature events are invaluable to the cultural life of New York, especially for the multi-generational Guyanese community and its networks. The annual Guyana Folk Festival season in Brooklyn is a popular summer destination for Guyanese, other Caribbean folk in the Diaspora, and those who wish to learn about Guyana’s multi-ethnic culture. Our work with Guyanese and Caribbean community organizations, as well as Brooklyn Arts Council, has allowed us to spark change through collaboration, creative and strategic partnerships.
