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.
