Applications are open now through May 8, 2023.

BRIClab offers emerging to mid-career artists essential support and opportunities to share their work. All residents receive a $2,500 stipend, mentorship, skills-based learning and professional development, and documentation of their work. Additional support, in the form of funding, space, access to equipment and media classes, and other resources vary according to tracks. In-process public programs for the 2023/2024 cohort will take place from September 2023 through May 2024.

The program's four tracks are Contemporary Art, Film + TVPerforming Arts, and Video Art. Each track offers unique resources and opportunities designed to meet the needs of varied artistic practices. This is an opportunity for artists to select the track that will offer the most benefit at this particular stage in their practice.

BRIClab prioritizes applications from disabled, BIPOC, and LGBTQ+ artists as part of BRIC’s ongoing commitment towards addressing systemic inequities in creative fields and industries, and as part of BRIC’s efforts to expand access for disabled artists, audiences, and staff.

We understand disability as a spectrum, inclusive of neurodiversity, chronic illness, mental health disabilities, and invisible disabilities, as well as disabilities that affect mobility, sight, hearing, and other senses. No one will be asked to verify their disability in any way, and we understand disclosure can be a complicated and personal decision. More information about accessibility at BRIC can be found here.

BRIClab selection panels reflect BRIC’s values and artists, and will be inclusive of disabled, BIPOC, and LGBTQ+ reviewers. Panels are made up of BRIC staff, alumni artists, and active participants in relevant fields. Evaluation will be based on how the goals of the proposed projects match up with resources available; relevant work samples; and the creation of diverse and representative cohorts. Artists will receive final word from BRIC by the end of June 2023.
