A shared meal and conversation, towards shared action in our community.
BRIC invites all our neighbors to end the weekend with a community-building dinner and discussion. These days, local priorities can feel obscured by urgent national concerns. But we can build from the ground up, taking local action once we are unified around a shared vision and purpose.
At the OPEN Sunday Supper, we’ll begin to creatively envision what we want to see in and for our community. What actions can we imagine to create the neighborhood we want? And how can we begin to see ourselves as a WE?
Facilitated by Brisa Areli Muñoz, Temesgen Tocruray, and Dennae Hannah in collaboration with Sojourn Theatre, this gathering will kick off a year of creating action in community, to culminate at the BRIC OPEN Festival in April 2018. Open to everyone, we especially invite long-time residents and newcomers, and individuals whose daily work is not art-centered.
Program starts at 5PM, Supper at 6:30PM.
From 5-6:30PM, activities for children (ages 5-12 years) will be available in the BRIC House Artist Studio.
NOTE: Capacity at BRIC House is limited, and admission is on a first come, first served basis, whether you have RSVP'ed or not. Please come early to ensure entry and seating.
The BRIC OPEN Festival aims shine a light on the power of inclusive, participatory arts & media programming to shake up our ideas about who makes and consumes culture, whose voices and stories sit at the center of artistic creation, and how we come together to imagine, and move toward, the future we want.
In an effort to make The BRIC OPEN Festival truly accessible, all events are FREE with RSVP, but if you have the means, and you value artistic and cultural work, please consider making a donation to support the continued health of this programming at BRIC. Donate here!
BRIC House is Brooklyn’s cultural living room: a 40,000 square foot multi-disciplinary arts and media complex in the former Strand Theatre, where emerging and established artists can create work that deepens their practice and engages the diverse communities of the borough.
