This week the Brooklyn Public Library is launching a program all about Democracy.
An inflatable pavilion will be outside of the Brooklyn Public Library this week from Monday, June 11- Sunday, June 17 right near one of Brooklyn’s most historic architectural sites. The Grand Army Plaza, which is home to the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Arch along with a few other key monuments and statues, will be welcoming the new temporary structure dedicated to a dialogue about democracy.
The idea of Democracy Lab, as the space has been named, is to be a classical symposium of sorts where people can come to debate ideas. Over the course of the week you can participate in over 50 free programs dedicated to conversations about civic engagement, social justice, public space, utopia and democracy. There will also be daily readings of The New York Times moderated by artists and community members alike.
The giant dome is an initiative presented by the Brooklyn Public Library in partnership with Prospect Park Alliance, raumlaborberlin, Storefront for Art & Architecture, and visitBerlin. You can check out the full schedule of events on the Library website. The events are free but you’ll want to RSVP soon to secure your spot.
