The Academy seeks to serve the People of Elizabeth in four ways:
We will operate a museum dedicated to explaining the region’s vital role in American Revolution and how immigrants made and are making a difference today.
We will use our 200-seat Auditorium to host Community Theatre, Concerts, and Lectures. We are especially interested in attracting new artists and performers who reflect the diverse and talented population of the city and surrounding area.
The 2nd floor studio will be a haven for art students from a variety of disciplines. ESL and other training programs will help new immigrants and persons with special needs “fill the gaps” in their learning so they can find better jobs.
There will be office space for government and social service organizations. The weekly Agape feeding program will serve the working poor. Other agencies will target immigrants, the un- and under-employed, and women seeking a better life.
