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.

Bud Light Music Series: Protoje | Jah9 | Yoga on Dub | DJ Top Notch & MICRO DON

Thursday, June 27 , 7:30 pm – 10 pm, 2019
2019-06-27T00:00:00-04:00
11225, NY, Brooklyn

Fronting his militant band Indiggnation, Protoje articulates the righteous anger of a generation—he’s “at the forefront of the young, talented artists redefining the parameters of what reggae music sounds like in the twenty-first century” (LA Post Examiner).

Born in Montego Bay and raised in Falmouth and then Kingston, the deeply spiritual dub singer Jah9 is “inspired by the fearless truth-telling of Nina Simone” and projects “the ethereal aura of early Erykah Badu” (Billboard). She’s a fierce advocate for women’s rights and a practitioner of healing arts—she will lead a Yoga on Dub class with live music before her set.

DJ Top Notch & MICRO DON, regulars at Bed-Stuy’s Lovers Rock, will take to the turntables to spin throughout the night.
