Animate your imagination with the Bay Area's third annual Night of Ideas!

Gathering Bay Area thinkers, community leaders, artists and visionaries, this year's edition of the festive all-night library takeover will stream to your home. But even as we remain safely apart, how do we close the distance?

After a year that has created or exacerbated so many kinds of distance—physical and metaphorical—among us, we've invited these voices to share ideas and creative visions that can bring us closer together. How do we close the distances we face between each other? How do we close the distance toward a more just and vibrant Bay Area?

Hosted by KQED's Mina Kim, the evening features a special conversation with San Francisco Mayor London N. Breed about how she plans to lead our community through the recovery ahead.

Join us to explore a program representing a breadth of the wider Bay Area's diverse thought and expression, including:

Talks

Spoken Word and Multimedia 

Original Performances

NIGHT OF IDEAS is produced in connection with LA NUIT DES IDÉES, a project of the Institut Français, Paris. Night of Ideas is an annual event dedicated to the free circulation of ideas and knowledge, initiated and coordinated by the Institut français in Paris.

Night of Ideas is co-presented by California Humanities, KQED, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and Villa San Francisco.

The event is made possible by the support of the City and County of San Francisco, the Friends of the San Francisco Public Library, Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States, French American Cultural Society, Consulate General of France in San Francisco as well as AbbVie through its ongoing support of KQED. La Nuit des Idées is a project of the Institut Français.
