Keep BKC Alive


Support Community, Creative Education and Artist Programming

Since we opened doors in 2012, BKC  has been committed to bringing the creative community our learning-focused, no-nonsense classes and programming in photography and multimedia visual storytelling. Analog or digital, and now online we provide the know-how and coaching for anyone to discover their creative vision in a warm, welcoming environment.

Give today and stand for community, creative education and artist development. 

Not only are we a source for learning and community, but we are also a space to help emerging artists connect and grow.

47696558_1588034357910987_r.jpegEven through a pandemic, we are committed to the artists in our community and have donated our time and financial support by proactively launching the Artist Relief Print Shop , an online sale that aims to help photographers and artists make ends meet during the COVID-19 quarantines. To date, we’ve sold over 200 artist prints and have raised over $13,000 with 100% of net proceeds going back to the artists. 

While our mission is to facilitate community, creative education and artist development, we have to be realistic on what we can continue to offer and we’re hoping that you can help support our goals by making a contribution or by spreading the word.

Your kind support in any amount will help build back our business so we can continue to bring you BKC and more. 

Keep BKC Alive and support community, creative education and artist development today!
