For 41 years, we've been gathering at the Prospect Park Bandshell to sing along, dance, and revel in show-stopping performances by artists from around the world and around the block. Each year 200,000 people come together to be part of the beautiful and unique community of our BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, but sadly this year, we will not be reunited at the Bandshell.
At BRIC, we envision a Brooklyn where all people have meaningful connections to artistic experiences, the tools and opportunity to express their creative potential, and the agency to transform their world. We have continued to put that vision into practice to take care of each other during this global health crisis.
We appreciate your support and patience in the upcoming weeks, as the health of our community is of the utmost importance. Part of our mission is to unite Brooklyn through art and creativity, so this was an extremely hard decision for us to make and we will strive for a future date to reschedule the B Free Awards and classes.
In accordance with the City of New York and health officials guidelines, and as we work together to overcome this public health crisis, our doors will be closed through the end of April. This means that all events through April 30 are canceled.
Starting Friday, March 13 through March 31, all of our media education classes are postponed, both at BRIC House and Brooklyn Public Libraries. If you are a registered student you will be contacted with further instructions from our education team.
Starting Monday, March 16 through April 30, our building, BRIC House at 647 Fulton St., will be closed to the public. This means that our exhibitions, media center, public spaces, and BRIC Cafe will be closed and all of our public programs will be postponed or canceled, including this Saturday’s performance by Gyun Hur. We will be reaching out to ticket buyers by the end of the day on Friday, March 13 with additional information on rescheduling or refunding.
Our current exhibitions will remain open through Sunday, March 15.
Our modified Media Center hours remain through Sunday, March 15 as follows:
