Toyota Giving




Brooklyn-based non-profit arts organization that gives grants, presents free and affordable arts events, trains artists and arts professionals, incubates new projects and promotes artists and cultural groups across the borough. With the help of the community, Brooklyn Arts Council is hoping to generate enough participation to raise the total $5,000 through the #ToyotaGiving campaign. These funds will go toward a variety of Brooklyn Arts Council programs and initiatives such as Arts in Education, which engages students, teachers, parents and community members in educational arts experiences including digital, literary, performing and visual arts; Scene: Brooklyn, independent film and media arts showcases the diverse film talent based in Brooklyn and brings Brooklyn filmmakers together with new audiences; and Folk Arts, which works with Brooklyn’s traditional artists and their immigrant communities to preserve and present arts expressive of Brooklyn’s heritage including folk song, storytelling, social dance, foodways, material culture and more.
