FESTIVAL OF IDEAS


From May 4-8th, downtown New York City will be the site of an ambitious


experiment. But, if you’re reading this, then you probably already know that.


What you may not know are the stories of the individual and groups dedicated to


bringing this celebration of the transformative power of creative capital to bear


on the city we know and presumably love. From artisanal food vendors and urban


agriculture enthusiasts, to performance artists, cartographers, painters, architects


and local storytellers, the Festival of Ideas brings together the small-scale


innovators and artists with the institutional forces that shape the quality of our


urban environment in an attempt to define the ideas that will drive our city in the


21st Century
