IdeaFestival Spurs Breakthrough Thinking, Connections

For one week every year Louisville really lets its imagination and ideas soar with IdeaFestival.

Artists, intellectuals, even the occasional autistic savant – descend on Louisville to discuss ideas on a wide variety of topics. The Festival brings together artists and professionals from different walks of life to encourage “breakthrough thinking” and new ideas.

Events are held throughout downtown Louisville – the Kentucky Center for the Arts, the Green Building, Humana, Louisville Science Center – rather than a “conference center” to further fuel creative thinking. The Festival also looks for presenters who not only offer mesmerizing ideas and concepts, but who also can communicate to a wide-ranging audience.

This year the festival, set for Sept. 29 through Oct. 2, offers a mix of individual presentations and discussion series. One series will focus on a demographic known as “Thrivals;” another will focus on filmmaking.

Other events include a discussion on how certain areas of the world retain practices that prevent some modern diseases; the fundamental lessons of war in Homer’s Iliad; a presentation by Sapphire, the author behind the movie Precious; “The Mental Floss Trivia Show;” and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Rick Bragg. There also will be a fundraising reception and dinner literally on Louisville’s Main Street, a series of discussions about a demographic known as “Thrivals;” dance and music performances and a film festival.

The 10-year-old festival offers a mix of free and ticketed events, as well as All-Access Passes. Single event tickets run $19.50; the passes average out to $57 a day.
