Each year, the residency program provides local artists with the opportunity to advance their skills and interests in contemporary art, film + TV, and video art.
As part of the residency program, selected applicants will receive a $2,500 stipend, mentorship, skills-based learning and professional development, and documentation of their work, in addition to other support.
According to BRIC, the initiative looks to strengthen and diversify the artistic community in Brooklyn by fostering relationships, facilitating long-term growth, and establishing a meaningful pipeline of engagement with the arts organization.
All applications will be reviewed by panels consisting of BRIC staff and alumni, with limited spots being selected for each field — five artists selected for the contemporary art cohort, six for video art, and three for film + TV.
The application period is open from February 1 to March 14, with applicants finding out BRIC’s decision by the end of July of this year.
As part of the organization’s “ongoing commitment towards addressing systemic inequities in creative fields and industries,” BRIC said that it will place priority on applications submitted by disabled, BIPOC, and LGBTQ+ artists.
