Night of Ideas 2022

Where are we going?


For the third edition of Night of Ideas in Chicago, Villa Albertine partnered with the Chicago History Museum and welcomed inspiring voices from Chicago, France, the US, and beyond for a five-hour marathon of ideas on the 2022 theme: “Where are we going ?”. The public visited the Museum after hours as its spaces came to to life with talks, performances, interactive happenings, children’s workshops, exhibition tours, yoga, and more. Night of Ideas 2023 in Chicago was produced by Villa Albertine Chicago in connection with Night of Ideas, a project of the Institut Français, Paris, and supported nationwide by the Judy and Peter Blum Kovler Foundation, the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the France Chicago Center at the University of Chicago, the Alliance française de Chicago, Sofitel Hotel, Savencia, and Vanille in Chicago.
