Fifth Annual (Outdoor) Institute Social

Eat, drink, sing, and celebrate another year of critical, community-based education in the public sphere!

The Brooklyn Institute warmly invites you to our Fifth Annual Institute Social—taking place this year outdoors in the friendly confines of Prospect Park! Join us for an afternoon of light snacks, refreshments (we’ll supply, but BYOB!), lively conversation, and, if you dare, karaoke. Event tickets are suggested donation; please see below for the donation level that feels right for you. All proceeds help support the Brooklyn Institute’s core operations, as well as our many public initiatives, including BISR Praxis; our podcast series; free public events; and our scholarship fund, which provides to students hundreds pay-what-you-wish scholarships per year.

PPE will be provided at check-in, and all city safety protocols will be observed. We look forward to seeing you—to reconnecting with old friends and meeting new ones; chatting with favorite professors; and generally being social, in person, once again.
