Night of Ideas 2021

Save the Date! January 28, 2021!

The cultural service of the French Embassy in Canada, in partnership with the Institut Français, the 9 Alliances Françaises of Canada and their partners are offering you the 6th edition of the annual meeting dedicated to the unhindered circulation of ideas and knowledge, the Night of Ideas.

The 2021 edition promises to be very special. The keyword is “Closer” (Proche in French), which will allow us to question the profound transformation of our relationships with space and mobility, the new solidarities that this health crisis has given rise to, or the predominant role of the virtual world, which permanently changes our vision of the world.

You will thus be able to participate in an unprecedented online experience in the form of a large global live broadcast on social networks, “24 hours of night and ideas”. This digital event will thus be able to transcend time zones by promoting the free circulation of ideas.

Individual cities across Canada will also host specific events for The Night of Ideas! Calgary, Edmonton, Halifax, Moncton, Ottawa, Toronto, Vancouver, Victoria and Winnipeg will each offer you ideas to ponder upon within the theme “Closer” in the form of virtual meetings or different online visits!
