Our Story

Our Story

Founded in 2014, and derived from a Vision Plan for Rochester's underserved areas, the Joseph Avenue Arts and Culture Alliance is devoted to bringing music, dance, theater and the visual arts to families and children in a safe environment. We join with those who believe personal and community revitalization begins with the culture of performing arts. In addition to coordinating and sponsoring performance and visual arts based activities, we are working diligently to bring to fruition the conversion of our National Register of Historic Places listed building into a Center for Performing and Visual Arts.
