BRIC's safety measures

Proof of vaccination is now required for entry into BRIC House. For more information, please head here.

For over forty years, BRIC has served as a creative catalyst for the communities of Brooklyn.

As we welcome you back to our main venue, BRIC House, we want to ensure that you have all of the information you need to feel comfortable and safe while joining us in person. The BRIC Media Center is currently open by reservation only.

Please review our updated COVID-19 safety guidelines below and email with any questions.


BRIC's HVAC system employs MERV-13 filters to further reduce the spread of infectious particles and allergens in our ventilation system. We have increased outdoor air intake and increased air circulation. We will continue to monitor best practices around air flow and air quality to ensure our guests and staff are as safe as possible.
