Chicago History Museum, Villa Albertine and the Consulate General of France are thrilled to present Chicago’s third Night of ideas.

Free and open to the public, this global celebration of thought will welcome inspiring voices from academic, artistic, scientific and civic communities for a five-hours marathon of ideas on this year’s theme « Where are we going ? ». Explore the Museum after hours while engaging in intellectual talks, panels and workshops on topics like living together in a city, social justice, education, urban planning, climate change and more.

With 5 hours of discussions, panels, performances, workshops and more, Night of Ideas : Where are we going ? hopes to raise dialogue, awareness, commitment and action to cultivate richer lives for ourselves, our communities and our planet.  DanceWorks Chicago is excited to make its debut as part of The Night of Ideas, sharing Monologue by Joshua Manculich.

Food and beverages will be available for purchase at the Museum’s North & Clark Café.

The Night of Ideas is an annual nocturnal marathon of philosophical debates, performances, readings and more, presented in 100 countries worldwide including the United-States. Today, Night of Ideas is a nationwide phenomenon, drawing tens of thousands of people to events in 19 cities across the country, produced by the newly launched Villa Albertine.
