The French Consulate in San Francisco, San Francisco Public Library, SFMOMA and KQED are thrilled to present the very first edition of Night of Ideas on February 2, 2019, at the San Francisco Main Library from 7pm to 2am! The event is presented in collaboration with the City of San Francisco, and along a vibrant ecosystem of local cultural, science, tech and academic partners.

A free and open to all 7-hour marathon of philosophical debate, talks, performances, readings, and music featuring top thinkers from San Francisco and beyond to spur dialogue on “Facing our Time: the City of the Future”.

The event is made possible with the support of Friends of the San Francisco Public Library, 836M, the Cultural and Scientific Services of the French Embassy in the United States, French Bee, the Intercontinental Hotels of San Francisco, the French American Cultural Society and KQED, our media partner.
