Night of Philosophy and Ideas

Saturday, January 25, 2020

The Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States, Old Dominion University, and the Slover Library Foundation present an all-night marathon event of ideas, philosophy, music, art and much more. In cities all across five continents and now arriving in Norfolk, the Night of Ideas is a world-wide event that celebrates the stream of ideas between countries, cultures, topics, and generations. The 2020 edition of the Night of Ideas centers around the common theme “être vivant” or “being alive.” Guests will gather together to ask: What is being alive? What is our place in the living world? How does “Being Alive” impose us to take action?
