Since 1999, The Museum of Contemporary African Diasporian Arts (MoCADA) has used art as a vehicle for the liberation and celebration of the African Diaspora through community conversations, creative expression, interactive learning, and cultural preservation. We amplify voices that are central to the upliftment of Black lives and we advocate for equity and access on every level.
Twenty years later, our mission has grown through three programmatic arms – Exhibitions, Education, and Community – that use the visual arts as a point of exploration through the cultural experiences of Black people worldwide. Through new artistic productions across a variety of disciplines, we create unique experiences that expand beyond the traditional “museum” concept to incite dialogue on pressing sociopolitical issues facing the African Diaspora and enable social justice. Not only is MoCADA a dynamic, safe space that balances the inequality of access and representation, MoCADA is a critical tool for engaging people across social divides and regions, while welcoming those who are systematically left out.
MoCADA explores curated spaces outside of Brooklyn including Governors Island to help illuminate stories of where the histories and futures of African Diasporan Art connect, in connection to themes of social justice to uplift marginalized communities.
Join MoCADA House on Governors Island for an expanded calendar of outdoor events that uplift mind, body, soul, and culture for all ages.
