SEQAA (Southeast Queens Artist Alliance)

The Southeast Queens Artists Alliance is comprised of visual artists and writers. Our mission is to nurture local talent and to support quality cultural programming by artists who want to share their work with people in the community and beyond. At the same time, we want to participate in the ongoing discussions in the neighborhood around development and gentrification, and the role of art and culture in our community.
