Artists come to BAC with a need – for funding, skill development, employment, networking, and more – and we in turn open countless doors to support and share their work with Brooklynites. From distributing grants, to providing arts education programs, to supporting professional development for artists, to commissioning public artworks, BAC creates avenues for each artist to develop and present art that inspires and reflects residents of all of Brooklyn’s neighborhoods.
One such wide-reaching BAC artist is Aeilushi Mistry. A dancer born and raised in India and trained in Bharatnatyam dance, Aeilushi moved to the United States in 2001. She won her first BAC grant to fund her work in 2013, and we’re proud to say she has been with us ever since – enlivening BAC’s work in myriad ways just in the past year:
Aeilushi is just one of thousands of artists whose talents are amplified by BAC’s programs and services. Artists like Aeilushi need BAC’s services to thrive, but we can’t do our work alone.
During this season of giving, we hope we can count on your generosity so we can continue to sustain Brooklyn’s artists where they live and work. We know that when artists succeed, Brooklyn’s communities flourish. You can be a part of that effort today. Between now and December 31, 2018, your donation to Brooklyn Arts Council will be matched dollar for dollar by BAC’s Board of directors – doubling the impact of your giving. If you can, please consider making a gift here.
Thank you for your continued support, and best wishes for a healthy and joyful holiday season!
