Secret Project Robot is part of the old guard of North Brooklyn spaces…In its current incarnation, Secret Project Robot is a non-profit hybrid music and art space featuring a gallery, two stages, and twenty-seven artists spread across eight studios, including three soundproofed repurposed metal freight containers. The studios are inexpensive for the [Bushwick] neighborhood: “We want the cost to reflect the spirit of what we’re about,” says Rachel, “which is supporting artists and creating a healthy environment for people to work and create together.”
