Will "More" Ever Be Enough?

Thank you for your interest in Night of Ideas 2023. The event has ended. Check back here for updates in the coming months.


Save the date! The Bay Area’s biggest celebration of creativity and critical thought is back at San Francisco’s Main Public Library!


This year’s edition brings together dozens of local cultural organizations, leading thinkers and artists to contemplate the theme “More?” In a world driven by the logic of growth, what does it mean to have “more”? What do we need “more” of: More material abundance, connection, creativity? More justice? More joy? Can we share “more”— and can we sustain it? Will “more” ever be enough?


Join the Villa Albertine San Francisco, KQED, SFMOMA, and the San Francisco Public Library, along with artistic curating partner Circuit Network, for another inspiring marathon of talks, performances, food, art and collective imagination.


Free to the public, the Night of ideas takes place from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. with programming on all seven floors of the Main Library. Friends of the San Francisco Public Library and Value Culture will host a lounge and DJ dance party, and the evening will also feature pop-up performances and a small marketplace featuring San Francisco businesses.
