Teens grades 9—12 are invited to participate in an engaging virtual exploration of Haitian history, art, and culture hosted by BAM’s very own Brooklyn Interns for Art and Culture. This slumber party-themed event features a spotlight on visual art and artifacts, storytelling, and art making, as well as presentations by teaching artists.

The Brooklyn Interns for Arts and Culture are a cohort of high school seniors who spend 18 months behind the scenes at BAM developing college and career readiness through a wide range of creative projects—including designing and presenting this special event.
