The Nuit des Idées / Night of Ideas is coordinated by the French Institute. 

The Theme of this edition is "Plus ?" / "Less is More!".

What started in 2016 during an exceptional evening that joined French and international voices in Paris to discuss the major issues of our time, the Night of Ideas has quickly become a fixture on the French and international agenda. Each year, on the last Thursday of January, the French Institute invites all cultural and academic institutions in France and on five continents to celebrate the free flow of ideas and knowledge by offering conferences, meetings, forums and round tables, as well as screenings, artistic performances and youth workshops, around a theme that each one of them has chosen to explore in its own way.

The event will be held in person and open to all ages.

Free parking is available around the school.
