Festival of Ideas

A Colorado Classical Symposium

Join us as we celebrate the 10th anniversary of Festival of Ideas!  In honor of this milestone, we have expanded the event to host two world renowned keynote speakers: mathematician and author, Dr. Francis Su, and Irish musician and philosophy professor, Dr. Eliot Grasso. We will also be enriching our professional development aspect of the event by bringing in the esteemed education professor, Dr. Matthew Post, to lead the Educator’s Seminar.

Festival of Ideas is free and open to the public. We provide you with a full day of learning from academic experts. Complimentary breakfast and lunch are always provided, but this year we will also celebrate with cake! Don’t miss the festivities of this spectacular occasion.
