BRIC is proud to announce that with support from the New York Community Trust, we are able to provide in-kind media production support and training to ten New York City-based arts and cultural organizations. The $200,000 grant will allow these organizations to capture and distribute digital content, as well as build internal media capacity toward long-term sustainability.
