Brooklyn Arts Exchange | BAX

Artist Services Weekend (ASW) features an array of talks and workshops designed to serve working dance, theater, performance artists and their supporters.

For twenty-five years BAX has been at the forefront of developing and supporting dance, theater and performance artists through an array of programs and services that make up an artistic home for so many.

Workshops are FREE (but reservations strongly recommended...see schedule and register HERE)

Sunday, February 11 | 11-12:30pm 
"Redefining Power"  
A workshop created and facilitated by BAX's Youth Education Racial Equity Cohort: Angie Pittman, Donna Costello, Maira Duarte, Billy Schultz, Casey Hayes-Deats and Lucia Scheckner

BAX Youth Education invites you to join us for a conversation about ways in which we can dismantle white supremacy power structures while working with young artists (and beyond) in classrooms and studios. Adopting an "unconference-model" of facilitation to illustrate this inquiry, we will begin with questions with which the BAX community is wrestling, but the workshop will be participant driven and grow from the questions and experiences of those who join us. Add your questions to our own: How do we manifest power-within and power-with rather than power-over in class/studio environments? What does it mean to meet young artists where they are as opposed to where they might be expected to be?

Sunday, February 11 | 1:30-3:30pm 
All Black: A Long Table - Dancing While Black & Eva Yaa Asantewaa/EYA Projects
Stress and Self-care
Curated and facilitated by Eva Yaa Asantewaa

Let's talk about the many sources of stress in the lives of Black and Brown artists. What approaches, resources and tools help us counteract the effects of stress on our physical health, psyches, interpersonal relationships and creativity?
Note: The All Black Long Table is conceived and created as private space for conversation among Black and Brown artists and community members. We request that all respect this designation.
Core participants: Rashida Bumbray, Charmaine Warren, Orlando Hunter, Paloma McGregor 
Support our current Artists in Residence!

An element of Artist Services Weekends is BAX's AIR Open Studios II: an opportunity to step into and witness the creative process of our current Artists in Residence.

See HERE for the full ASW schedule, including AIR Open Studios II featuring Maria Bauman, Mariana Valencia, luciana achugar, Catherine Galasso, Aya Ogawa and Tanisha Christie.
Workshops are sponsored through the underwriting and generous contributions of Scott Klein Team at Douglas Elliman Real Estate Park Slope. Many thanks.
