Bring your paper, pencil, and creative eye for an unconventional sketch night of music, dance, and video led by HOWDOYOUSAYYAMINAFRICAN?, known colloquially as THE YAMS, a collective of over 38 artists, writers, composers, academics, filmmakers and performers from around the African Diaspora. Known for their uncensored voice on race, gender, identification, and sexual orientation, the artists will collaborate on one night of performance, music, artwork, and fashion. Through multiple performances, featuring the Parisian DJ Koo Des the YAMS will explore the body—stomach, heart, and mind—as an open source operating system.


BRIC’s Stoop Series illuminates the arts and life around us in Brooklyn through artistic performances, presentations, participatory activities and dynamic conversations. Explore music, visual art, film, media, storytelling, comedy, and other creative fields. Grab a coffee or a cocktail and engage with some of the most innovative artistic voices in Brooklyn's ever-expanding cultural scene. On the monumental interior stoop of BRIC House – there’s something different every week!

This program was made possible in part by TD Bank.
