This June, Prospect Park Alliance and Brooklyn Public Library present University Open Air, a free, three-week series of classes from June 11 through June 30, in Prospect Park's former Rose Garden.  University Open Air brings immigrant teachers and professors outdoors to be a part of a pop-up university with lectures on topics ranging from Urban Anthropology to Data Science to Contemporary Taiwanese Poetry.

Featuring courses and workshops from mathematicians, social scientists, urban planners, an actor, and historians from more than 15 countries across the globe, University Open Air will span from urban anthropology to Islamic history, gender equality, data science research, LGBTQI and gender studies, linguistic preservation in Tajikistan, and more. Courses will take place on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, expanding the Library's role as a catalyst for civic engagement for the borough’s 2.6 million residents, and the Alliance's mission to provide innovative programs in the park for its more than 10 million annual patrons of all socio-economic and cultural backgrounds.

Thursday, June 13 , 7 pm – 9 pm, 2019

Both individually and collectively The National's members have been involved in countless artistic, charitable, and socio-political pursuits. The group released A Lot of Sorrow documenting their collaboration with installation artist Ragnar Kjartansson, which took place at MOMA's PS1 and saw the band play their song "Sorrow" for six hours in front of a live audience. The group is behind the Red Hot benefit albums Dark Was The Night and Day Of The Dead, and the compilation boxed set titled 7-Inches for Planned Parenthood. Band members have received a Golden Globe Nomination for work on the score of the 2015 film Revenant; founded or played a major part in Boston Calling, MusicNow, Eaux Claires, and Haven Festivals; participated heavily in both Obama Presidential Campaigns; and much more.

Courtney Barnett is one of the most distinctive and compelling voices in indie rock, a singer-songwriter who mixes deeply insightful observations with devastating self-assessment. With countless awards in her home of Australia as well as Grammy and BRIT nominations, fawning press and an adoring audiences, Barnett's rise to global prominence feels both unprecedented and important. 2017 saw the release of the wonderful album Lotta Sea Lice, an introspective but beautiful album of duets with Kurt Vile and a gorgeous place-holder while we awaited the release of her world-weary-but-fierce sophomore solo album Tell Me How You Really Feel in 2018.

This event is rain or shine.
