About Us

From our inception in December 1999, MoCADA has remained committed to fostering a greater awareness of the art and culture of the African Diaspora as it relates to contemporary urban issues through innovative exhibitions, public programs and interactive tours.

The “little museum that could” has quickly become a significant part of the cultural fabric of Brooklyn , partnering with organizations such as the Brooklyn Museum of Art, Brooklyn Children's Museum and Brooklyn Academy of Music. Currently, MoCADA mounts four exhibitions per year and organizes thirty public programs related to these exhibitions. Integral to the mission of MoCADA is our commitment to community outreach; we have created several successful programs that bring our work to the community, including the P.S. 262 and P.S. 308 Artist in Residence Program, the High School Internship Program and the KIDflix Film Festival of Bed-Stuy held each year in historic Fulton Park .
