Chicago Ideas Week is an annual seven-day celebration of ideas, innovation, and community designed to ignite, inspire, connect, and catalyze our community around great ideas and great people.
Chicago Ideas Week (“CIW”), October 16-22, 2017 provides a platform for the world’s thought leaders, creators, and doers to share their genius, and inspire Chicagoans to co-create a positive future. Chicago’s institutions – museums, universities, civic organizations, and others – in partnership with CIW, host notable speakers and achievers as part of a concerted city-wide event that highlights innovation and provocation. Chicago Ideas hosts programming all year long, including The Curiosity Series from February through May. Learn more at chicagoides.com.
