Bringing Brooklyn Together for 45 Years

BRIC’s work is made by our community, for our community. Support BRIC today and help make our programs possible.


DOUBLE YOUR IMPACT: All donations made to BRIC before Dec. 31 will be matched (up to $10k) courtesy of longtime friends of BRIC, Jennifer & Steven Eisenstadt. Donate today!

For 45 years BRIC has been Brooklyn’s creative and community hub – and we’re just getting started! From the Lena Horne Bandshell and BRIC TV to our BRIC House galleries and classrooms, BRIC’s future is bright. A gift today supports Brooklyn’s seasoned media makers and emerging creatives alike.


Help us empower Brooklyn’s youth

Carmen Hernandez, Director of Youth Education and Family Programs at BRIC, sees firsthand the impact that BRIC’s programming has on the youngest members of our creative community. In 2023 alone, BRIC’s 35 teaching artists provided visual and media arts instruction to more than 3,000 students across 23 neighborhoods.

Support award-winning community media

Brooklyn Free Speech, formerly known as BCAT, has been entertaining, educating, and uniting Brooklynites for decades. Brooklyn-raised Vladimir Sterlin tells us about the programs that impacted him most growing up. Today, we take great pride in educating and serving 25,000+ emerging media moguls every year through our Brooklyn Free Speech network.

Bringing together Brooklyn’s artistic community

Artist Jackie Battenfield reminisces about the Rotunda Gallery, the birthplace of BRIC’s contemporary art and education programs, and one of the first places where Brooklyn’s creatives built a thriving community.

How one artist transformed from performer to music festival curator

From performing at BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! to curating BRIC’s 2023 JazzFest with some of the most exciting Jazz artists working today, Brooklyn-born musician and curator Melanie Charles is what BRIC is all about!
