La Nuit des Idées (Night of Ideas)


Byron Writers Festival invites you to attend the international expansion of the legendary French ideas festival, La Nuit des Idées. Founded five years ago in Paris, La Nuit des Idées (the Night of Ideas) has grown into a global celebration of arts, culture, science and philosophy.

The theme for 2020 is "Being Alive", so expect a vibrant, cross cultural and interdisciplinary conversation about life, the universe and everything in between.

Guest Speakers:

International guests from France include philosophy professor Thierry Hoquet, author and performer Olivia Rosenthal, and author and DJ Fabrice de Rotrou. Joining the line-up are local filmmaker Damon Gameau and performer Kate McDowell as MC, with more guests to be announced soon.

Don’t miss this incredible evening of ideas, creativity and music!

All proceeds from this event will be donated to the Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Appeal.
