Night of Ideas
A global event, taking place simultaneously in more than 100 countries and 20 US cities, Night of Ideas invites thought leaders and performers to engage the public in an evening of discussions around major, contemporary global issues. Chicago’s Night of Ideas takes place at the Chicago Architecture Center on February 28.
Free and open to the public, this celebration of thoughts welcomes inspiring voices from academic, artistic and civic communities drawing on on this year’s theme, “Outside the Lines.”
Explore the Chicago Architecture Center after hours during this drop-in event from 5-9 p.m. Engage in intellectual talks, panels, book signings, and performances, on topics like the future of the Great Lakes, food deserts and urban farming, gentrification, housing policy and lending disparities against the backdrop of Chicago at night.
