Brooklyn's Creative Future Needs You!

For over forty years, BRIC has been giving Brooklyn a platform and a gathering place. BRIC’s creative workforce is the lifeblood of our organization and represents a significant segment of Brooklyn’s creative economy. 

Help support our mission to Build Brooklyn’s Creative Future, by donating to the BRIC CREATIVE FUTURE RELIEF FUND.


BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! is a world-class festival with outdoor performances in a beautiful setting. You'll have fun while helping in a variety of ways at our music, film, and dance performances. Volunteering contributes to the cultural life of your community, you’ll meet new people and work together to make something incredible happen.

Dedicated volunteers play an integral role in the staging of the festival. The time and assistance you contribute over the course of the summer will make this year's BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival the best yet!

Applications will open soon for our 2020 season! Check back at a later date to apply to volunteer at the BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival this summer.

Stay tuned for our season lineup announcement later this spring!

PLEASE NOTE: Volunteers must be able to work a minimum of 5 shifts throughout the season. There are several opportunities throughout the summer that count as ‘double shifts’ (pre-season work days, chair removal shifts, etc).

Follow @BRICcelebrateBK on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to stay updated.

What is expected of me as a volunteer?

BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! is comprised of 25-35 performances during the months June, July, and August. Volunteers are asked to commit to 5 shifts throughout the season. Shifts are approximately 4 hours each. Your commitment to scheduled dates is important. The ideal volunteer has strong interpersonal skills and has the ability to work in a team environment, work well in crowds and in inclement weather. Other volunteer experience, especially in a venue, school or other large capacity facility is helpful. Bilingual is a plus.

What are the perks to being a volunteer?

Based on the number of shows you work, you will be rewarded with a wonderful range of incentives including reserved seats at shows, VIP wristbands, and more. Details about perks will be provided during the sign-up and orientation process.
