BRACA is the Bay Ridge Arts & Cultural Alliance.

BRACA is an umbrella organization, launched in 2011, to support and promote the arts and cultural richness of Bay Ridge and to develop strategies that will make Bay Ridge a cultural destination. We accomplish this by partnering with local businesses, informing local audiences and strategizing to create new audiences.

BRACA promotes Bay Ridge’s ethnic organizations, dancers and dance companies, festivals, art galleries, historical societies, museums, park organizations, opera companies, visual artists, performance venues and local businesses.

Everyone knows that Brooklyn is a cultural destination. And Bay Ridge has its own niche—known for its wonderful restaurants, amazing waterfront, bucolic parkland, shopping and village-like atmosphere. But, not enough people know much about what Bay Ridge has to offer culturally. BRACA was created to fill this void.

Our website features a monthly calendar of events, links to all of our member organizations and sponsoring businesses, event highlights, and the BRACA Beat column, which focuses on items of local interest.
