BAC gives grants, presents free and affordable arts events, trains artists and arts professionals, teaches students, incubates new projects and promotes artists and cultural groups across our borough. As Brooklyn’s cultural anchor since 1966, BAC has also been the catalyst helping the arts community grow. We continually evaluate and evolve what we do to meet the changing times, and keep our commitment to community engagement, diversity and inclusion when it comes to the arts in our borough.

Included here are BAC's current, live applications. Please contact Submittable directly if you have any issues with the online form. For application questions, please contact the BAC department indicated in the guidelines of the application. 

Refer to application instructions and selection criteria (http://www.brooklynartscouncil.org/files/downloads/Performing_App_Instructions.pdf) before beginning application. We highly recommend that you compose your answers offline and copy/paste them into the online form so that you have your work backed up if there is a technical issue.  Please note, the online form will not accept formatting such as bulleted lists or boldface or italics. Composing your answers in a basic text editing program (such as Notepad or Text Editor) instead of from a word processing program (like Word or Pages) will avoid this issue. Questions with an asterisk  *  are required.

BAC accepts and reviews applications year-round on a rolling basis. Please note that you will be asked to include a cover letter, resume, sample lesson plan, and work samples of your professional and student work. Questions with an asterisk * are required.
