The Brooklyn performance venue JACK was founded in 2012 by theater director Alec Duffy, scenic designer Mimi Lien and a small group of co-founders. The goal in starting JACK was to create a theater that reflected the diversity of the city and that was threaded into the surrounding neighborhood of Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. Over the past seven years, JACK has served as a development space and launch pad for countless artists and has become a valued center of culture and activity in our neighborhood. JACK now presents over 200 events a year, including theater, music and dance performances as well as community conversations around topics of importance to the neighborhood. JACK's mission is to fuel experiments in art and activism, collaborating with adventurous artists and our neighbors to bring about a just and vibrant society. This year, JACK announced its move to a new space in the same neighborhood following the end of its lease in its original space. The new space will open in fall 2019.
