You don’t have to be born in Brooklyn to be “Raised by Brooklyn.” So many cultural icons, public servants, artists, community activists, and business leaders have been born in Brooklyn. Millions – including many of us at BRIC – have followed a dream that led them here. By birth, by choice, or by circumstance, we have all been embraced by and Raised by Brooklyn.

There’s a spirit to Brooklyn, an energy and mindset that spans every corner. From the stoop to the bodega, from the flower shop to the coffee house, and back home again – Brooklyn gets into the body. It sticks to the ribs like soul food. Stay here long enough and you’ll know its rhythm.

It’s that feeling you get passing Prospect Park on a Saturday evening and hearing the music projecting from BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! down at the Bandshell. It’s the tapestry of color and movement that turns a ride on the A train into a canvas for expression. It’s in the comfort of neighbors at the local barber or beauty shop, where everyone is accepted.

“Raised By Brooklyn” is more than a tagline; it’s an aspiration. A daily reminder to embrace the fullness of this place – where all are welcome. No matter your story, no matter your path, all roads in Brooklyn lead home.

We hope you’ll join us for the magical evening we have planned, celebrating and sharing in all that is Brooklyn. All monies raised will directly benefit our work, providing meaningful cultural and media access to artists, students, and some of our youngest creatives and learners throughout the borough.
