(Re)watch the event live stream here.


This iteration of the Night of Ideas will be a more intimate affair, compared to previous in-person events at the Main Library, which drew more than 5,000 people. The program will seat 200 in KQED’s new theater, The Commons and will be streamed live online. The event will also feature a sampling of SFMOMA’s Soapbox Derby cars created by local artists and a bar in the station’s lobby for those who want to watch on the lobby media wall and imbibe at the same time. Before the main program, from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., join Creativity Explored for tours of artwork installed at KQED featuring neurodiverse and disabled artists working in their San Francisco studios.


Presented by: KQED, San Francisco Public Library, SFMOMA, California Humanities, and Villa Albertine San Francisco.
