Established in 1967 with the bipartisan support of Senators Robert Kennedy and Jacob Javits, Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation (Restoration) is the nation's first community development corporation, and one of Brooklyn's largest. For over forty years, Restoration's mission has remained unchanged: to improve the quality of life of Central Brooklyn's predominantly low-income and minority families. Integral to its mission, Restoration's Center for Arts & Culture (CAC) aims to promote, present, and preserve the multi-cultural arts legacy of the African Diaspora, and encourages the artistic development of the community.
