2017 Panelists

Community Arts Grants

BAC panelists are experienced cultural professionals with a commitment to the development of the arts and culture in Brooklyn. Knowledge of Brooklyn communities, and expertise in an artistic discipline, arts administration, or community arts programming are key. 

BAC strives to create a fair and impartial panel environment that is representative of the diversity of the borough, and therefore seeks to craft panels that are diverse in terms of ethnicity, gender, age, culture, geographic representation, and artistic focus.
