Founded in 1988, Saint Mary’s Community Services is a non-profit, non-sectarian cultural organization dedicated to the well-being of the Clinton Hill and Fort Greene communities. Our programming seeks to facilitate community access to available artistic and educational resources. Such resources include individuals necessary to drive participants’ learning, as well as the technological equipment necessary for the newest methods of learning and research.

Ours is a history of arts education and enrichment. What first began as a weekly concert of pan-African song and dance has become as large and diverse as our community. Our current core programming is focused on highlighting the unique and diverse heritages present in Clinton Hill and Fort Greene. Arts education, performance, and discussion are our chosen methods of doing so. We have multiple arts classes for elementary students, adults, and seniors spread throughout the week; bi-weekly performances or exhibitions featuring local artists and travelling cultural groups; and monthly seminars led by local residents who share a specific piece of their culture. Residents at these seminars also discuss and propose community projects.
