Connect Emerging Artists, Local Businesses and the Public to Challenge the Perception of Art and Foster Community.
WHAT WE DO
We present an annual 10-day long Festival in the BoCoCa (Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens) area of Brooklyn and support and showcase the highest works of music, theater, visual and performing art. We strive to “cast” emerging artists of multiple disciplines in unconventional neighborhood venues, such as bars, restaurants, vacant storefronts and galleries, supporting artistic expression and showcasing these beautiful neighborhoods and eclectic businesses.
We forge lasting relationships of collaboration to challenge an individual’s traditional approach to art and its (inherent and necessary) connection to local business and the greater community.
We present the Festival throughout four almost-hidden neighborhoods in Brooklyn -- Boerum Hill Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens and Gowanus. These unique communities marry 19th century brownstones with industrial warehouses, main business thoroughfares with tranquil neighborhood parks. Mixing business professionals, artists, kids and kids at heart, across generations and varied demographics, with vibrant, family-owned fish markets, trendy boutiques and world-class restaurants, these diverse and beautiful neighborhoods are truly inspiring.

From varied backgrounds and professions -- actors, musicians, writers, directors, students, community activists, professionals, therapists, lawyers, and teachers -- we have come together to connect as artists. We believe that no matter who you are or what you do, personal and creative expression provides a sense of purpose.Our dynamic company members -- each so generously volunteering their time – include: Executive Producer and Counsel, Donald P. Blydenburgh, Esq.; Artistic Producer, Eileen Trilli; Managing Producer, Jennifer Habeck; Artistic Director, Annie Keating; Music Division Director, Adam Scherer; Visual Arts Division Director, Claire Berjot; and Public Relations Coordinator, Mary Wei.
