BAM's latest addition, the BAM Fisher, is a dynamic, flexible space for new programs, Brooklyn artists, and the community.
The newest home for adventurous artists, audiences, and ideas
Opened in September 2012, the BAM Fisher is a new facility designed for LEED Gold certification and located at 321 Ashland Place—around the corner from BAM’s Peter Jay Sharp Building. Part of a new model for the 21st-century arts center, the BAM Fisher offers affordable ticket prices, subsidized rehearsal and performance spaces, and an expanded roster of humanities, education, and family programming. The BAM Fisher is a place where artists and community come together—and you, the adventurous audience, are an active participant.
Named in honor of longtime friend and former BAM Endowment Trust Chairman Richard B. Fisher (1936—2004), the BAM Fisher serves as the cornerstone of BAM’s 150th anniversary celebration and a commitment to BAM’s future. The building features several spaces:
The BAM Fisher is accepting rental inquires for its various spaces. See Rent BAM for more information.
Professional Development Program
The BAM Fisher is the home of the BAM Professional Development Program (BAM PDP). In partnership with the DeVos Institute of Arts Management, the BAM PDP provides professional development training and deeply discounted subsidized theater and rehearsal studio rental to a selection of nonprofit Brooklyn arts organizations. The program supplies these organizations with the proper tools to expand their skill base, increase their institutional capacity, and build the necessary foundation for long-term success, culminating with a self-funded production in the Fishman Space.
