Mission: The two key phrases in understanding the Brooklyn Academy of Music's (BAM) mission are: contemporary creativity and contemporary point of view in the performing arts; and expanding accessibility to the performing arts. On the one hand, it implies a commitment to contemporary artists whose work BAM values; on the other hand, it implies a commitment to BAM's audience and potential audience, to exhibit in its programming a broad and inclusive understanding of the performing arts, to provide a comprehensible context for the stage work, and to inform and broaden the audience.

In the New York arts scene--and in the global arts scene--there are few major institutions that match the degree of innovative programming in multiple discplines BAM has to offer. Not only does it bring performing companies in areas of Theater, Dance, Contemporary Music, and Opera from all over the world to New York audiences, but it creates a sense of global and local community. BAM is a hub for the hip New Yorker, and gives back to its community through Education & Humanities Programming.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
Friendly, positive, welcoming, and down-to-earth.
