Night of Ideas, a French embassy program, has multi-city participation around the world, and it will converge at NHM, home to First Fridays, for a dynamic all-night program designed to complement and resonate with the 2020 worldwide theme "Being Alive." The emphasis of the program, which has participation from around the world, will celebrate the concept of what it means to be alive and “be well” as an individual, as a member of a community and as an ecosystemexpressed through talks, films, performances, music and interactive discussions around the intersections of science, philosophy, art, nature and culture.

Night of Ideas is co-organized by the Consulate General of France in Los Angeles. Learn more about Nuit des Idées.
