University Open Air

All Day, Tuesday, June 11, 2019

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.

For a full schedule of courses and to register, please www.bklynlibrary.org/university-open-air. Courses will be accessible and open to all levels of knowledge. Please check the website for the most current schedule. Walk-ins will be welcome.

Brooklyn native Cory Henry, a Snarky Puppy alumnus and “one of the finest Hammond B-3 organ players of his generation,” (AllMusic) has been an in-demand musician for going on two decades. Stepping out as a frontman with his band Cory Henry & the Funk Apostles, he’s proved himself an exceptional singer and band leader, too.
