DANCE NEWS: BRIC Announces BRIClab 2022-2023 Artists-in-Residence
Artists Working in Four Tracks Have Been Selected for BRIC's Residency Program
BRIC, a leading, multi-disciplinary arts and media institution anchored in downtown Brooklyn, is pleased to announce the 2022-2023 BRIClab artists-in-residence. BRIClab is a multi-disciplinary residency program created to offer emerging and mid-career artists essential resources, financial support, mentorship, and skills-based learning opportunities. In addition, it provides a chance to share their work with their peers and the public.
The residency aims to build a more robust and diverse artistic community in Brooklyn by fostering relationships, and supporting long-term growth and engagement with BRIC. The program supports artists to freely and diligently explore the possibilities of their practices. Each of the four creative tracks offers a unique set of resources tailored to meet the distinct needs of varied artistic expression.
Wes Jackson, President of BRIC, says, "Our BRIClab residency program provides an opportunity pipeline for some of the most dynamic and innovative artists working in Brooklyn. Many of these creators go on to showcase within other parts of BRIC, like our Contemporary Art Project Room or even the stage of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! BRIClab is at the heart of what we do here at BRIC, and I'm honored to welcome this new cohort of artists and makers into the BRIC community."
