Speakers Announced For Chicago Ideas Week

October 16th-22nd

The seventh annual Chicago Ideas Week returns this October with more than 150 world-renowned speakers covering a wide variety of topics to create the largest ideas festival in the world. The nonprofit platform centers on the belief that when audiences of every background have access to thought leaders and innovative ideas, people have the power to spark change in the world. Attendees should expect thought-provoking ideas, hands-on demonstrations, local artists and live music. The extensive list of speakers – from former Foreign Secretary of the UK and President & CEO of the International Rescue Committee, David Miliband, to world-renowned opera singer Renee Fleming – guarantees a vast array of topics and intensely rewarding experience. General admissions tickets are available September 12th starting at $15. Onstage events will be hosted at the Harris Theatre, Venue Six10 and Morningstar, with hands-on Lab events hosted at dozens of venues throughout the city. A full list of speakers and events is available at www.ChicagoIdeas.com.
