Launched by the Institut français in 2016, the NIGHT OF IDEAS is a project staged simultaneously in Paris, London and worldwide, at the end of January.
This year, the London edition of the NIGHT OF IDEAS becomes an online week-long festival from 22 to 29 January.
Crossing French, British and European perspectives, this new edition will engage audiences in free debates with the theme TOGETHER as the common thread to tackle the latest ideas behind issues central to our times.
At a time when our salvation depends on the distance we put between each other, when countries are redefining their borders, when our way of life jeopardises the whole biosphere, do we have to reinvent new ways of being close to one another and to the world? If we wonder how we can face today’s crises, the answer is perhaps: together.
Echoing the main themes of this year’s edition, an online programme of films, BEFORE THE NIGHT (22 – 25 January) will precede a series of thought-provoking and free debates (26-29 January) live streamed online.
All debates in the Night of Ideas are free to attend and open to all.
1. Watch them ONLINE
2. Most films are ticketed (£2) unless indicated otherwise. Online bookings open on 18 January.
Join the Night of Ideas, join the debate!
