ALLIANCE OF BROOKLYN CREATIVES
Alliance of Brooklyn Creatives (ABC) is a cooperative of Brooklyn-based art collectives, artists, and businesses and venues that focus on and endorse artistic, collaborative exchange. This alliance supports community building through arrangements that offer artists and collectives greater exposure and the opportunity for dialogue and general support.
ABC MEET-UPS / Fall 2017
ABC hosts bi-monthly meet-ups to provide a space for valuable conversations surrounding relevant topics in the Brooklyn arts community. Meet-ups are intended to support those that attend - meaning the direction of each meeting may naturally differ based on those in attendance. Each meeting will include an invited member from the Brooklyn arts community to speak to his or her experience, goals and network.
Meet-ups take place at:
406 3rd Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11215

At this meeting, we will lead a conversation about the roles of artists and collectives in today's cultural and political climate.

We believe that ABC has a big future in Brooklyn. Together, we have the opportunity to brainstorm ways to create mutually beneficial relationships with each other and in our community and put those ideas into action.
After two years of sending out monthly emails to distribute information regarding upcoming events, calls for performers, advertising for venues and more, we have decided to move to a Facebook group with the hopes of expanding the ABC network and in turn, the resources it offers.
