About BRIC


We are a leading arts and media institution anchored in Downtown Brooklyn whose work spans contemporary visual and performing arts, media, and civic action. For over forty years, our institution has shaped Brooklyn's cultural and media landscape by presenting and incubating artists, creators, students, and media makers. As a creative catalyst for our community, we ignite learning in people of all ages and centralize diverse voices that take risks and drive culture forward. BRIC builds Brooklyn's creative future.

Our main venue, BRIC House, offers a public media center, a major contemporary art exhibition space, two performance spaces, a glass-walled TV studio, and artist work spaces.

Some of BRIC’s most acclaimed programs include the BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival in Prospect Park, a renowned contemporary art exhibition series, and two distinct media initiatives: Brooklyn Free Speech, Brooklyn's Public Access initiative, and BRIC TV, a nonprofit community TV channel and digital network. BRIC also offers education and other vital programs at BRIC House and throughout Brooklyn.

In addition to making cultural programming genuinely accessible, BRIC is dedicated to providing substantial support to artists and media makers in their efforts to develop work and reach new audiences.

BRIC Statement on Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion:

BRIC is committed to creating environments that honor, respect, and celebrate the humanity of all people. We support our artistic and creative communities in their efforts to affect positive social change in Brooklyn and beyond.

As a leading arts and culture institution anchored in Brooklyn, BRIC fosters an evolving workplace focused on the growth of our staff while developing arts, media, and cultural programs that reflect our core values. We embrace rigorous curiosity and collective wisdom to leverage the expertise of our diverse staff and community members and embody our commitment to diversity, equity, belonging, and social justice.

BRIC recognizes that forces of systemic racism and oppression are active in the arts, media, and cultural sectors, and champions the need to combat inequities in society that have led to marginalization and cultural divisions. With humility, we acknowledge and uphold our community’s shared histories and experiences within these spaces. BRIC works to create more equitable ways of working and being together throughout all areas of BRIC, including curation, incubation, education, storytelling, partnership and community engagement, marketing and communications, fundraising, internal operations, and strategy.
