Night of Ideas 2022

Where are we going?

The first-ever in-person Night of Ideas in Atlanta invites intellectuals, artists, entrepreneurs, and the Atlanta public to embrace themes of city and culture, particularly in this moment of crisis and rebuilding. Where are we going?… As a city, as a society? How can we build a more democratic and inclusive city? What is the future of culture and the role of technology in our society? From 6pm to midnight, from a VR cinema experience to a participatory long table discussion, the very first in-person Night of Ideas in Atlanta offers a rich multidisciplinary program, combining debates, art installations, performances, screenings, and a DJ set. 


With the participation of Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens, French video game studio Accidental Queens, Ryan Gravel, urban thinker and original visionary of the Atlanta Beltline, Anne Lafont, art historian, and many more. 


Free and open to the public.


Presented by: City of Atlanta Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs and Villa Albertine, at The Woodruff Arts Center.
