EMERGENYC is housed at BAX/Brooklyn Arts Exchange, a multigenerational arts organization that nurtures creative expression and artistic process through education, residencies, and performance at the intersection of arts and social justice. Founded in 1991, BAX is dedicated to serving artists in progress, from children to professionals, at all ages and stages of development. The multi-faceted nature of our programming annually invites over 10,000 students, families, artists, audiences, and community members to embark upon and share creative journeys. For three decades, BAX has honored the power of performing arts to connect and transform individuals and communities. Our education programs, artist residencies, affordable rehearsal space, community engagement opportunities, mentorship, and performances all center artists from historically underrepresented backgrounds, and prioritize lived and embodied experiences and access, regardless of their ability to pay.
