Programs

The Bronx Council on the Arts (BCA) acts as a connector, resource, and advocate through programs that connect communities to the arts, provide resources to artists and arts organizations to continue their work, and advocate for Bronx arts and culture. BCA's most recent programs include Artists Engage Talks and Convenings; the Bronx Artist Registry; the Cultural Assets Map (CAM); and the Cultural History Map (CHM).  Our soon to be launched membership program will allow members to connect with each other and the arts through a unique set of offerings. 


Connector Programs

The Bronx Council on the Arts (BCA) serves as a connector between Bronx arts and culture and the community. Our flagship program, the Longwood Arts Project, and other BCA public programs, such as the Bronx Memoir Project, provide Bronx residents with opportunities to engage directly with the arts. BCA Artist Residency and community programs bring the arts directly into underserved communities throughout the borough.

Resource Programs

For over 60 years, BCA has been a premier resource for Bronx artists and cultural organizations from every zip code in The Bronx. Through our regranting programs, the largest in the borough, we provide funding to support the work of artists and arts organizations and help bring the arts to the community. BCA's Bronx Recognizes Its Own (BRIO) awards foster artistic excellence through monetary awards for artists. Our professional development Artist Sustainability Workshop Series (ASWS), offers artists the tools to further develop their careers, and arts organizations the knowledge necessary to strengthen their practices.

Advocate Programs

The Bronx Council on the Arts advocates for cultural equity and inclusion, and envisions a world in which all people have creative agency, and knowledge of and access to the arts. BCA partners with other organizations, and engages in advocacy campaigns with partners to advance increased support for the arts at the borough, city, state and federal levels.
