Brooklyn arts and media institution, BRIC, has just released their highly-anticipated lineup for the 2023 season of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn!.
For nearly half a century, BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! has connected and highlighted global artists that reflect the borough’s extensive diversity, and this year marks its 45th anniversary.
Programming will officially kick-off on Wednesday, June 7th at Lena Horne Bandshell in Prospect Park. More than 20 benefit concerts, dance performances, film screenings, Pride activations and more will grace the stage throughout the summer, all open to the public!
“BRIC is about community, art and culture and there is no greater example of that than BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn!,” said BRIC President Wes Jackson. “For 45 years our team has brought free and affordable programming to Prospect Park, and low-cost media education to the people of Brooklyn.
The 2023 lineup will be a blast from the past with the theme “looking to the future while honoring our past” as BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! will revisit some favorite moments from seasons before. “This summer is all about imagining the future through the lens of our past. We can’t wait to see you back at the Bandshell,” shares BRIC’s website.
