BAMkids Parent Advisory Circle
The 2022-23 BAMkids Parent Advisory Circle is an amazing group of ten Brooklyn-based, global majority parents and guardians who meet monthly with BAMkids staff. They have made a year-long commitment to reflect, dream, and advance the future of BAMkids by co-curating new experiences and programs.
The inaugural advisory circle launched in the fall of 2021 with six parents who are passionate about the arts and connecting with others. Highlights of their contributions include BAMkids Heroes of Color HQ, a family-focused event presented in conjunction with BAM’s annual celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and BAMkids SpringFest, a festive day of performances and interactive activities celebrating spring and themes related to environmental advocacy and care.
The recruitment cycle for the 2022—23 season is closed. If you’re interested in getting recruitment updates for next season or want to learn about other ways to get involved with BAMkids, please reach out to BAMkids@BAM.org.
