The Brooklyn Conference: Inspiring Social Change (Day 2)

Saturday, October 21, 2017

All day

Join us for Day 2 of the conference, which features special programs and screenings in the Cantor Auditorium, including a conversation led by Charles M. Blow and the New York premiere of the film Winnie. There are also workshops throughout the Museum, including D.I.Y. screenprinting and zine-making, among many others.

All-access tickets for Saturday are $30 ($15 for students and artists). Some of the Saturday programs have limited capacity and require a separate ticket. Tickets will be available at registration on a first-come, first-served basis. Tickets for the full conference are $65–$150 ($25–$85 for students and artists). Student and artist discounts are available by emailing tickets@brooklynmuseum.org. Limited number of tickets available. Because programming runs all day with limited breaks, we highly recommend purchasing a boxed lunch ($19 per day), and joining other attendees to eat lunch in our Beaux-Arts Court.
