Queens Rising Announces Lineup for Queens Scene Performance Series

Queens Rising is back for its third year of the Multidisciplinary Arts Festival with the Queens Scene series starting Saturday, June 1st.

Queens Scene

Queens Rising is a collective celebration honoring the culture and diversity of the borough. Their mission is to spread awareness of Queens’ rich history in the arts and contributions to New York City art. They work with many organizations and establishments to bring these celebrations to life. Queens Scene is one of the many programs they offer to exemplify pride for their community.

Additionally, the venues taking part in the festival have chosen artists all of whom they feel represent the creative and cultural significance of Queens. Each performer was chosen from an open call in the spring and will have the opportunity to grow their platforms.

Sponsors for the event include Northwell Health, Resorts World NYC, Howard Gilman Foundation, and the Kupferberg Center for the Arts.

JCAL has participated in Queens Rising since its founding, and watching the growth of this remarkable initiative has inspired our dedication to performing arts, visual arts, and arts education here in “the world’s borough.” To see Queens Rising now supporting borough-based artists—it’s a tangible recognition of how far and how fast Queens has really risen, and of our extraordinary potential to draw arts patrons from every corner of our city.
