LEXINGTON, Ky. (Dec. 20, 2012) — The international IdeaFestival (IF), now conducted each fall in Louisville, returns to Lexington in early 2013 for a unique two-day event. “IF Lexington: Creative Disruption” will be March 7-8 at the Locust Trace Agricultural Science Farm. Kent Lewis and Brad Clark of Event Artistry are partnering with IdeaFestival to lead the design and coordination of IF Lexington.
“We are pleased to bring IdeaFestival back to its roots,” said Lewis, founder of Event Artistry and TEDxLex. “Lexington is a great place to introduce this new event format to the community and we look forward to collaborating with other cities across Kentucky to launch similar events.”
Day-one of the IF Lexington event will launch the first-ever youth-exclusive idea showcase of local talent in the Bluegrass region. Day two will focus on local and regional efforts toward new ideas, creative thinking and disruptive innovation.
“We are excited about having the IdeaFestival back in the ‘DNA’ of Lexington for a high-energy, two-day event,” said Kris Kimel, founder of IdeaFestival.
Founded in 2000 in Lexington, IdeaFestival is a celebration for the intellectually curious. It’s an eclectic network of global thinkers and one-of-a-kind innovators bound together by an intense curiosity about what is impacting and shaping the future of the arts, business, technology, design, science, philosophy and education. The content of IdeaFestival is as diverse as the network itself – presentations range from discussions about life before life to the existence of parallel universes; from global politics to the philosophy of randomness; from disruptive innovation to living to be 250 and beyond.
IdeaFestival is conducted each fall in Louisville at the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts. The 2013 event will be Sept. 24-27.
