Co-presented by the French Embassy and the Brooklyn Public Library, A Night of Philosophy & Ideas is produced in connection with La Nuit des idées, a project of the Institut français, Paris.

In New York City, a Night of Philosophy was produced by the French Embassy in April 2015, and was curated by Mériam Korichi. The all-night event, which took place at the neighboring Fifth Avenue mansions of the French Cultural Services and the Ukrainian Institute of America, was wildly successful, drawing over 5,000 attendees.
