Silent Barn is a continually-evolving collective
based in Brooklyn. We are dedicated to building an open community
where visitors and members engage with art through all-ages shows
& events, studio workspace, and education. We also provide space
for activist groups fighting to empower and protect marginalized people
outside of our
We value the cooperation of members of all ages, backgrounds,
experiences, and identities, while prioritizing the safety and comfort
of those who don't feel at home in other spaces — notably black
and brown, native Brooklyn, and LGBTQ communities.
We work to create an environment that opens dialogue and encourages
participation from all whose values overlap with ours, whether they've
been involved for years or hours.
We unite around the potential of art and education to widen our
perspectives, uplift the voices of the oppressed, and in turn benefit
the communities we live in.
