WHAT ARE REALTALKS?

Here at BKC we value building community though open and honest discussion.  Starting in 2017 we'll be programming REALTALKS, a series of thoughtful and free-flowing dialogue exploring the intersection between creativity and commerce.  Each event will feature special guests from across the creative industry and highlight a topic covering various areas of the creative process, from getting inspired to growing your vision to creating sustainable business practices.  

This premiere REALTALK is completely free to the public, and a taste of things to come with our new BKC Members Program starting this month, which will provide many more topical discussions, community critiques, motivating assignments and lot more.

Submit to #RESIST Show: Friday March 17


Calling all photographic artists! What does resistance mean to you? What does the reaction to the current political climate look like? Does your work promote or highlight a marginalized group? We want to hear from you!

On Friday March 17th BKC will host the #RESIST! Show, curated by our own Sally Bozzuto and James Reddington.  Any work that utilizes lens-based media that relates to the theme of #Resist will be considered. This includes photography, photo-montage, photo collage and photo-illustration. 

All proceeds will be donated to the Reproductive Health Access Project, an organization that provides training and supporting clinicians to make reproductive health care accessible to everyone and the Ali Forney Center, an organization that protects LGBTQ+ youths from the harms of homelessness and empowers them with the tools needed to live independently.

The world has changed dramatically in the past month.  Between the travel bans, Cabinet appointments, hostility towards climate change science and outright attacks on the media and truth in general, we find ourselves at a crossroads.

Rather than sit quietly by and waiting for the other shoe to drop, we are instead springing into action.  Regular phone calls placed to members of Congress has become as normal an activity as binging on Netflix, and town hall meetings have become rallying grounds against the legislative enabling of the Executive branch.  

In addition, BKC will be contributing 25% of all proceeds from classes booked in the month of March to a select group of organizations poised to take on the aggressive policies of this Administration.  You can help us determine which are the most worthy causes by voting for your favorite orgs here.  

We'll announce the top vote-getters on March 1.  Vote today and let your voice be heard!
