Land Acknowledgement Statement
Flushing Town Hall acknowledges that we are on the traditional land of the Matinecock People, one of the original tribes of New York, and the first people of Flushing, Queens. The Matinecock continue to live and work on this land to this day. Flushing Town Hall honors their elders who have stewarded this land throughout generations.
At the same time, FCCA's programming has evolved with the community around it, with an increased focus on the arts and cultures of China and Korea in particular. To address these growing populations in the neighborhood, FCCA has formed a Chinese Cultural Committee and a Korean Cultural Committee. FCCA has also expanded its programming to include arts from Latin America and South Asia. The hallmark of FCCA's current programming is a cross-cultural focus: works that fuse or bridge different cultures, as well as larger programs that bring together presentations of art forms from different parts of the world. This approach aims to engage diverse audiences in appreciation of each others' rich cultural heritage, fostering a mutual respect and understanding that can help to build community, in an environment in which people from all over the globe share the same space.
