Arts & Culture

We’re a colorful, creative community. Come out and create with us! We’re especially looking to develop workshops, projects, and activities across all of our program areas including elders, TGNC, and youth.
Why are the arts a program priority? Researchers at the School of Social Policy and Practice at the University of Pennsylvania recently looked at hundreds of neighborhoods across the five boroughs of New York City and compared health and wellness data points over two years to the number and strength of cultural institutions in each community. They found that communities with cultural resources—even those in the lowest 40% of income distribution—had 18% less crime, 14% fewer cases of child abuse and 5% fewer obese residents compared with neighborhoods with similar racial and economic makeups that had few or no cultural institutions. The presence of arts was associated with higher educational achievement, as well. Neighborhoods with a strong cultural presence had 18% more kids scoring in the top stratum on English and math exams.
All events and programs are offered free to the public regardless of background, ability or training/experience in the arts.

A hallmark of the program involves telling immigration stories through the
LGBTQ New Americans Project. More info >

Got Ideas about additional programs or services, want more information, or looking to volunteer?

Contact Fredo Hernandez, Arts and Culture Group Leader, at arts@lgbtbrooklyn.org or call (347) 889-7719 x213.

We welcome proposals from individuals, groups and organizations interested in producing and/or facilitating exhibitions, screenings, workshops and/or performances for our community. Events, workshops and performances are executed on a voluntary basis. Works proposed should require minimal technical and space accommodations (see our space use guidelines). We are currently seeking proposals for:

  • Exhibitions (solo or group).
  • Performances (solo or small group/ensemble pieces that are low-tech).
  • Workshops (seeking facilitators for monthly workshops in all artistic disciplines, including seminars from scholars, activists, and cultural workers).

Apply here. Please be advised that due to the large number of submissions we receive, we are unable to reply to all requests.
