Join us while we explore the rich history of the country’s oldest performing arts institution, the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM). Founded in 1861, BAM has hosted over 150 years of diverse programming in dance, opera, music, film, and theatre, paving the way for innovative experiments in performance art by a host of prolific artists. Join archivists for an in-depth and behind the scenes tour of BAM’s multiple performing arts spaces, learn how to access archival holdings from the BAM Hamm Archives, and hear about BAM’s educational offerings for schools and teachers. Brooklyn Connections will tie the day together with lesson plans and additional resources for practically applying these themes to your curriculum. This workshop takes place at BAM. Please be prepared to walk; this event takes place rain or shine.
