          Brooklyn Voices

          Brooklyn Voices

          St. Joseph's College opens its doors to the area's foremost writers, musicians, actors and artists every semester through Brooklyn Voices.

          Created in collaboration with Greenlight Bookstore, the aim of the Brooklyn Voices series is to promote and enhance the creative vitality of our home neighborhoods of Fort Greene and Clinton Hill by providing local writers, artists and intellectuals with a forum in which to discuss and present their works to our neighbors, patrons and students.

          Through lectures, forums, performances and public discussion, Brooklyn Voices seeks to make a meaningful contribution to the thriving intellectual culture of the neighborhood and ensure that our community remains a stimulating place in which to live, learn and do business.

          All Brooklyn Voices presentations will take place in Tuohy Hall at 245 Clinton Avenue. Click here for a campus map.
