Space requests are reviewed weekly and a BAI staff member reviews and follows up on all inquiries. For more information, please visit the Space Requests page.

We are currently accepting requests for Fall 2017, which will be reviewed in April and May 2017; early submissions are encouraged.

Martinos Auditorium
The Martinos Auditorium serves as both a performance venue for small to mid-sized musical events, and a 35mm and digital screening facility. The space is available for large classes, performances, lectures and other special events.

Production Studios
The Granoff Center's four Production Studios characterize the central goals of the BAI and facilitate entirely new possibilities for interdisciplinary work in the arts at Brown. Flexible production space of this kind improves the level of work for both teaching and research and enables more ambitious multi-media installations, and performance-based works.

Cohen Gallery
The main floor Cohen Gallery presents exhibitions organized in conjunction with multi-departmental programs and course offerings, featuring thematic exhibitions, works that have evolved from coursework or research, and work by visiting artists.

Atrium Gallery
The Atrium Gallery located on the first floor provides opportunities for faculty, students, recent alumni and emerging artists to curate exhibitions of their work and those of visiting artists.

Recording Studio
The Recording Studio allows users to produce high-quality recordings for multimedia and theatrical sound design, music production, and scientific inquiry. Its proximity to the Production Studios is intentionally designed to entice artists who might not ordinarily incorporate sound in their work.

Khoo Teck Puat Multimedia Lab
The Khoo Multimedia Lab contains the hardware and software solutions necessary for students to create freely and unencumbered, stretching the boundaries of art, and redefining both process and practice. Students engage in a wide variety of disciplines, including 3D modeling and animation, filmmaking, electronic music, and hypertext authoring.

Cogut Physical Media Lab
The Cogut Physical Media Lab is used for production of and research in sensors, tangible interface, robotics and physical computing, primary areas of new research and teaching in the arts.

Living Rooms
An integral component of the facility’s design, the Living Rooms are welcoming, comfortable breakout spaces located on each landing near the stairwell, which draws students and faculty from the arts and beyond, helping to foster cross-disciplinary collaborations.

Project Studios
The Granoff Center contains four project studios, small spaces designed for individual, rather than collective work.

Outdoor Amphitheater
An outdoor Amphitheater is wired for sound and video, supporting outdoor performances, film screenings and installations. It also offers additional green space around the Center.

Conference Room
The Conference Room (#105) offers a panoramic view of Angell Street. The room can be reserved for small meetings and study groups.

The Convivium (#220) is a seminar-style classroom that can be used for mid-size classes or meetings.
