    The HCCC Department of Cultural Affairs (DOCA) celebrates diversity with a variety of programs and exhibitions. Our programs and exhibitions are learning experiences that transcend boundaries and aim to increase competency in all fields of education at any age. We offer free exhibition tours to Hudson County school groups and organizations in the Benjamin J. Dineen, III and Dennis C. Hull Gallery.

    We are pleased to open our spring semester with Out on Broadway: A Visual Legacy, curated by costume designer and Hudson County resident James Crochet. Out on Broadway commemorates the art of LGBT set and costume design in shows such as The Producers, Kinky Boots, and Hedwig and the Angry Inch. DOCA continues to host NJPAC satellite performances with presentations from the Alvin Ailey and Nai-Ni Chen Dance Companies. In March during Women’s History Month, the gallery proudly features an exhibition curated by the Carrie Haddad Gallery and select lm screenings coordinated by Tribeca Film Festival star Delaney Buffett.

    Thank you to all HCCC students, staff and community organizers for ensuring that this spring is a success. Can’t wait to see you on the 6th floor of the Gabert Library at the Journal Square Campus!
