Digital Storytelling and Visitor Analytics for City and Cultural Institutions
Bric House is a non-profit arts organization based in Brooklyn New York. It was founded as the “Fund for the Borough of Brooklyn” in 1979.
Prior to the opening of BRIC House (in the former Strand Theatre building on Fulton Street) in 2013, Bric house participated in programs located in multiple spaces around Brooklyn.
In order to create their permanent home, Bric House repurposed the former Strand Theater building in the heart of the Brooklyn Cultural District. Their current space now includes new theaters, television broadcasting studios, art galleries, glass workshops, media labs, a cafe, classrooms, administrative and operation offices, and support spaces.
Throughout the year, Bric House facilitates many programs dealing with arts and culture. Their programs cater to the diverse residents of Brooklyn and Manhattan. This includes art exhibitions, tv shows, film, and education. The main focus of these events is to make cultural programming genuinely accessible and to help local artists reach new audiences.
The organization is best known for programming the annual Celebrate Brooklyn summer concert series. Bric House also hosts On The Air Readings and the Look & Listen festival and provides community television access for Brooklyn. Other events include educational outreach aimed at children in the NYC region such as the Children's Bookfest. As well as events such as Stoop Series Concerts and the Bric Jazzfest.
