Spend 12 Philosophy-filled Hours in the French Embassy tonight!
Tonight, A Night of Philosophy takes over the French Embassy on 79th and Fifth ave. This twelve hour event takes over the historic mansion at 79th and Fifth, with a night of everything from philosophical lectures to artistic performances, from theatre to video art, from songs to dance and DJ sets—and it’s FREE (with free coffee and free croissants too!).
From 7pm to 7am, philosophy will occupy the historic corner of Fifth Avenue and 79th Street. Come and experience an innovative and original nocturnal happening, with over 80 events ranging from philosophical lectures to artistic performances, from theatre to video art, from songs to dance and DJ sets.
Come and experience philosophy as performance.
Events will simultaneously happen in all corners of the two mansions. Roam free throughout the unique settings of the French Cultural Services and the Ukrainian Institute of America, stumble upon enlightening talks, piano improvisations, unexpected performances, a musical spacecraft fallen from the sky. It will make you see philosophy, and night, in a whole new light.
The entire event is free and open to all.
We will provide coffee all night and croissants as the sun rises!
So don’t miss your first night with philosophy in the city that never sleeps.
A Night of Philosophy is an event created and staged by Mériam Korichi.
