BRIClab

This newly reimagined program offers emerging and mid-career artists essential resources, mentorships, and opportunities to share their work. The residency aims to build a stronger and more diverse artistic community in Brooklyn by supporting long term growth and fostering relationships across disciplines.

The program's four tracks are Contemporary Art, Film + TVPerforming Arts, and Video Art. Each track offers unique resources designed to meet the needs of varied artistic practices. Residents receive additional financial support, mentorship, skills-based learning opportunities, and documentation of their work. In-progress public programs (virtual and later live) will take place from September 2020 through June of 2021.

Meet the 2020 cohort for the Contemporary Art, Performing Art, and Video Art tracks and apply now through September 18 for the Film + TV track.
