Pratt Parallels brings the GAUD, its faculty, and students thinking outside of the boundaries of the Institute and into the city via collaborations with other creatively oriented cultural institutions, governmental entities and/or non-profit organizations. The talks are meant to be informal and impromptu. They are annually based and typically in the summer and/or fall. All lectures are organized with the generous support of the Maritime Foundation and the Brooklyn Bridge Park.
