The Night of Ideas: ’Utopias’ [fr]

Rendez-Vous on January 26th for The Night of Ideas

The Night of Ideas (Nuit des Idées) aims to create a thought-provoking platform in an intimate and convivial setting, around a theme particularly relevant for the city of Los Angeles : ’Utopias’. It will unfold from 7 PM to 2 AM at Bergamot Station, a former mythical train station turned into an artistic complex of 32 art galleries.

All through the night, indoor and outdoor spaces will host debates and roundtables featuring leading thinkers from various disciplines (philosophy, history, literature, architecture, the visual arts, music, the sciences…) as well as artistic performances (dance, music, film screenings…) and readings. The audience will be able to freely move between all those events and spaces, therefore experiencing a refreshing flow of ideas and creativity.

Where ?

Bergamot Station
2525 Michigan Ave
Santa Monica, CA

A foodtruck and a café will even be open to provide snacks and drinks!

All sessions in English. Free event.

The Night of Ideas will be organized simultaneously in 40 cities around the world on January 26th, 2017 by the Cultural Services of the Embassy of France and the Institut Français..
