Mission

BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music) is a multi-arts center located in Brooklyn, New York. For more than 150 years, BAM has been the home for adventurous artists, audiences, and ideas—engaging both global and local communities. BAM Education connects learning with creativity, engaging imagination by encouraging self-expression through in- and after-school programs for students and teachers; school-break workshops; and offerings for audiences of all ages.

Activities

Students examine the intersections of social justice and the arts in this unique interdisciplinary program. Through workshops in theater and creative writing led by BAM teaching artists, participants explore important issues affecting their communities while also developing critical thinking skills. The program culminates with the performance of an original theater piece created by the students, open to friends and family at the BAM Fisher.

In this program, students:
・ Engage in self-expression and collaboration through creative writing and research
・ Develop an original theatrical presentation to share and perform at the BAM Fisher
・ Attend events and discussions with invited guest speakers
