This momentous celebration of the arts & culture will delve into the very important question, ‘Where are we going?’
The City of Atlanta Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs and Villa Albertine have teamed up to present their Night of Ideas, which will be open to all at The Woodruff Arts Center! Celebrating the arts and ATL-living, the free-of-charge program is all set to take over the enchanting art space for one night only, on Saturday May 14. Villa Albertine is a cultural institution that’s building a community for arts and ideas between France and the US.
Their Night of Ideas will be at iconic art institutions across the country, and for the first-time-ever, Villa Albertine is coming to Atlanta with this free in-person mega-event.
In these trying times of political division and intense upheaval across Europe, the Night of Ideas will bring together intellectuals, artists, entrepreneurs, and the Atlantan public to not only embrace themes of city and culture, particularly in this moment of crisis, but also ask the age-old question, ‘Where are we going?..’
From an immersive VR cinema experience to debates and performances, the very first in-person Night of Ideas in Atlanta offers a rich multidisciplinary program combining the intellectual side of art, as well as its performative nature.

You can expect the hottest DJ’s, artists, and beyond. Our very own Mayor Andre Dickens will even be in attendance. Six students from local colleges and universities, along with Mayor Dickens, will give attendees their version of the future to kick off this unmissable evening.
Other themes that will be discussed and brought to life include urban development, hip-hop music, African art, identity, and so many more. There will be an astonishing line-up of speakers and artists attending, including French video game studio Accidental Queens, the urban thinker and original visionary of the Atlanta Beltline Ryan Gravel, and art historian Anne Lafont. However, that’s just the tip of this unmissable line-up at this exciting event taking over The Woodruff Arts Center.
So make sure you reserve your spot for this very special program at The Woodruff Arts Center on May 14. Whether you’re going for the debates, the art installations, the performances, or the closing party, you won’t want to miss this celebration of art, culture, and Atlanta.
