BAX/Brooklyn Arts Exchange arts and artists in progress became an independent not-for-profit in 1991. (as the Gowanus Arts Exchange) Our mission is to provide a nurturing, year-round, performance, rehearsal and educational venue in Brooklyn that encourages artistic risk-taking and stimulates dialogue among diverse constituencies. BAX has offered a full range of presenting—about 50 evenings each season—and educational programs in dance, theater, performance art, and film/video since 1991. Two alternative public schools in district 15 receive arts-in-education programs, as well. BAX's diversity is its greatest strength.
