Inspired by Plato’s Symposium, Noche de Filosofía will allow attendees to imagine what Brownsville will be like in 10, 20 and 50 years and the ideas we want to lead us there.
We will talk, drink and imagine: What will Elizabeth street look like in 50 years? What was the first cultural action in Brownsville? How can we evaluate art?
Local experts in education, art, philosophy and anthropology will discuss the ideas and principles they hope to guide the city into the future. Then attendees will pen their own toast to the the future of the region.
At the evening’s close everyone will raise their glass to the future of Brownsville and recite their playful (and possibly prophetic) prose.
Don’t miss the chance to grab a a seat at the table with artists, politicians and activists as they share their visions and then lift your voice and your glass to share your own. Join in the conversation; co-create the future.
