BAMkids Parent Advisory Circle

Sept 2022–Aug 2023



The BAMkids Parent Advisory Circle is an amazing group of BIPOC Brooklyn-based 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, and the group has met virtually with BAMkids staff each month since. 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.
