Our Approach

Part of what makes Brooklyn such an exciting and energizing place to live is its captivating mosaic of artistic and cultural organizations. We proudly partner with nonprofits that reflect our borough’s diversity through arts and culture programming grounded in community. By cultivating our neighbor’s new talents and honing their lifelong skills, we strive to uplift art that creates opportunities and access to new career paths, tells the history of our communities and our struggles and our joy, inspires our collective pursuit of racial justice.
