Brooklyn Arts Council's programs showcase the tremendous and varied talent based in Brooklyn – music, dance, theater, film, visual arts, literature, media, folk/traditional arts – you name it. We give artists stages, screens, galleries, spaces, training and the connections needed to share their work. We bring arts education to students of all ages, teachers, parents and community members.

BAC helps audiences discover Brooklyn’s cultural organizations, events and artists. We work in partnership with Brooklyn’s wealth of artists and arts groups, big and small, just starting out and established, of every discipline and in every neighborhood from Bushwick to Flatbush to Sheepshead Bay. Learn about our signature programs below.

BAC programs are made possible, in part, with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the New York City Council.
