IAI: What we do

Inspiring Events to Bring About the Change You Want

Our events unleash the potential that big ideas and philosophy have to change the world. Bringing together the brightest minds and experts in every field, IAI events are exciting occasions that give you chance to think, learn and discuss the ideas that matter. Meet like minded people, hear the latest insights and come away inspired to bring about the change you want.

Founded in 2008, the Institute of Art and Ideas aims to invigorate our lives and culture by placing philosophy and critical thinking at the heart of public life. Through the digital platform, IAI TV and a programme of events that includes the world’s largest philosophy and music festival HowTheLightGetsIn, the IAI generates and incubates original and challenging ideas and conveys these to the national and international public.
