BRIC's Stoop Share program, a community engagement initiative, provides the opportunity to share our unique venue with nonprofit organizations based in the immediate area around BRIC House, especially those groups who do not have a regular venue for public gatherings. Eligible programs must be free, open to the public, and appropriate for an all-ages audience.
