We hope to see you there! IF you’ve been to a previous symposium, you know what to expect: knowledge, community, and a whole lot of fun!
There will be 35 speakers (academics, music journalists, podcasters, authors, and independent scholars), 6 moderators, and special Prince guests, giving 3 keynotes, 4 roundtable discussions, and 20 presentations!
The speakers and work in progress schedule are posted on the symposium website. More Prince speakers to be announced. In the meantime, check out past symposia & events by polished solid productions.
The symposium is FREE but we kindly request that you consider donating to the PRN Alumni Foundation!
PRN Alumni Foundation, officially formed in 2017, is comprised of former employees of Paisley Park and the international icon Prince. The group’s mission is to continue the generosity of their late boss who supported opportunities for underprivileged youth to grow in music, tech, arts and education, and helped alumni members in-need. The foundation also supports urban farming initiatives that create sources of healthy foods where they are otherwise scarce.

Co-sponsored by the following NYU entities: Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality; Department of Photography & Imaging; Institute of African American Affairs & Center for Black Visual Culture; Tandon School of Engineering; Office of Global Inclusion, Diversity, & Strategic Innovation; & 370J Project.
