La Nuit des idées

Thursday 28 January 2021

Every year in January, the French Institute’s network celebrates La Nuit des Idées (The Night of Ideas) with conferences, activities and talks around a common theme that changes every year. Our activities in Edinburgh are free and open to all, in English and/or in French. Our open call to be a speaker/participant for the event will open shortly.

Celebrating the flow of ideas between countries and cultures, disciplines and generations: The Night of Ideas is an invitation to discover new ways of thinking, to listen to those who theorised new ideas in specific fields, to exchange on some of the major issues of our time. All forms are welcome (conference, theatre, performance, screenings, concert...) and the most prestigious and unexpected ideas are invited to join the party, offering an original interpretation of the chosen theme. The Night of Ideas is shared through all the French Institute’s social networks, making it a global event.
