Festival of Ideas

A Colorado Classical Symposium


At Festival of Ideas, speakers from a variety of disciplines, including mathematics, literature, philosophy, science, art, music, and history aim to give participants a taste of what true leisure feels like: a gateway to the good life--a life in pursuit of beauty, truth, goodness, and perfection. These presentations are intended to inspire great conversations filled with wonder, passion, and discovery.
