BRIClab is a multi-disciplinary residency program created to advance opportunities for artists, performers, and media makers. 

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 main tracks are Contemporary ArtPerforming ArtsVideo Art, and Film + TV. 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. Classes and in-progress showings, virtual and later live, will take place from September 2020 through June of 2021.


2020 - Current Residents

In 2020 we brought our artist incubation programs together under the multi-disciplinary program BRIClab. BRICworkspace became BRIClab: Contemporary Art, BRIClab become BRIClab: Performing Arts, Media Arts Fellowship become BRIClab: Video Art, and we introduced the inaugural BRIClab: Film + TV. This allowed us to better help artists across disciplines sustain and deepen their artistic practice while developing new skills vital to the successful pursuit of creative careers.
