Flushing Council on Culture and the Arts (FCCA) was founded in 1979 to be a revitalizing force for its community, and a creative catalyst for developing and promoting the arts throughout the Borough of Queens, the most culturally diverse county in the United States. FCCA restored, operates and programs historic Flushing Town Hall (circa 1862) as a multi arts center (on behalf of New York City, which owns the building) and provides services to artists, arts organizations and educational institutions, borough- wide.

FCCA also receives major support from the National Endowment for the Arts; New York State Council on the Arts, a State Agency; New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg; New York City Department of Education; Queens Borough President Hon. Helen Marshall; NYC Council Members Hon. Leroy Comrie, Hon. James Gennaro, and Hon. Peter Koo; Queens Delegation; and Bloomberg Philanthropies.
