After Manhattan and Brooklyn, the popular Night of Ideas crosses the Hudson River! Presented in Jersey City—one of the country’s most diverse and culturally vibrant cities—the nocturnal arts and culture annual marathon will take over Hudson County Community College (HCCC) on Friday, March 1, 2024.


The event will address the future of cities in one of the fastest growing urban centers in the US. Co-curated by Villa Albertine and Centre Pompidou—the iconic French museum which will soon open a branch in Jersey City—and presented with HCCC and the City of Jersey City, this free and public program will feature conversations, debates, multimedia pop-ups, and workshops, prompting attendees to consider the impact of urban development through lenses of inclusivity, sustainability, arts and culture, education, and food.


Alongside art and video installations, program highlights include a performance by former Jersey City poet laureate Rashad Wright; a workshop with designer and educator Prem Krishnamurthy; performances by Jersey City-based dancer and choreographer  Rimli Roy and her company, Surati; a conversation with Felwine Sarr, the Senegalese academic, musician and writer; and more.
