BRIC is thrilled to partner with The Bishop to present B Scene screening events by Brooklyn Free Speech program producers. The Bishop Gallery is a contemporary art gallery located in the heart of Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. Launched in 2012, they offer an innovative multimedia space, where the work of cutting-edge, emerging artists can be fully realized and experienced, while connecting the growing community of art lovers and culture seekers to the ever-expanding world of art.
BRIC is honored to partner with Weeksville in presenting the B Scene screening events from our Brooklyn Free Speech program. Weeksville Heritage Center (WHC), Brooklyn’s largest African-American cultural institution, is a multidimensional museum dedicated to preserving the history of the 19th century African American community of Weeksville, Brooklyn - one of America’s first free black communities. Weeksville advances its mission through history, preservation, visual and performing arts, ecology and the built environment.
