Night of ideas 2020


February 1, 2020.  NIGHT OF IDEAS 2020.  The French Consulate in San Francisco, KQED, San Francisco Public Library, and SFMOMA invite you to the second edition of Night of Ideas. This seven-hour marathon of philosophical debate, keynotes, panels, performances, and interactive experiences is designed to spur dialogue and creative participation on the theme « Living on the Edge. » We live in a world balanced on the edge between immense challenges and even grander possibilities. How do we reckon with these tensions and use them to create new visions for how we live together?  Each floor of the library is devoted to exploring different edges that contemporary life in the Bay Area balances on:  Chaos + Creation: How do we cope with disorder and disruption to fashion new ways to think and be?; Wonder + Worry: What anxieties about the future weigh on us most, and what fascinations will transform the way we live?; Exclusion + Belonging: How do we find belonging and identity while making space for differences of lived experience?; Truth + Doubt: With consensus about history and facts increasingly fractured, what narratives should we affirm?; Circulation + Borders: How do we transcend limits on movement for a healthy economy and a just society?  Join thought leaders and change-makers as they address these topics in keynote talks and discussion sessions. See a special live broadcast of KQED’s Forum with host Mina Kim. Share your own creative voice and exchange ideas in a range of participatory workshops, activities, or open mics. Enjoy spectacular performances and music by local artists shaping the culture of the Bay Area.  Registration for Night of Ideas 2020 is now open!
