What is the Braswell Arts Center about?

After many years of thinking of a way to bridge the gap between art and the public, the idea for the Braswell Arts Center was born. Our Arts Center will offer quality classes and provide a space for creativity, collaboration and innovation in all art forms. The newly designed space will be fully transformable for professional dance performances, concerts, gallery exhibits, and special events. We also see this as a chance to collaborate with the Basel arts community, schools and sponsors to provide a new and fresh initiative for emerging artists and underprivileged kids. We hope to offer free movement and performance classes as well as development and performance opportunities for artists.

BAC Kids – Social Programing

Our goal is to support emerging artists and underprivileged children through social programming in collaboration with Basel-Stadt, Basel-Land, corporations, foundations and the public. Through free performance classes and frequent exposure to high-quality artists in all art forms, we hope to create a unique mentorship program for underprivileged children. The Braswell Arts Center hopes to create a more approachable and less intimidating public relationship with art and artists and by offering free high-quality performances, we hope to encourage and nurture a new audience who might not have been exposed to the arts otherwise.
