Against the stunning alpine backdrop of the Aspen Institute campus, the 2013 Aspen Ideas Festival summoned the world’s brightest minds for seven days of provocative, challenging, and inspiring Ideas-generation.
Aspen Ideas Festival
Aspen, CO / June 27 – July 3, 2011
Now for the seventh consecutive year, The Atlantic and The Aspen Institute have collaborated to produce the Aspen Ideas Festival - a week-long celebration of brave thinking, new voices, and forward-looking dialogue.
A collaboration of The Atlantic and The Aspen Institute, the 2011 Aspen Ideas Festival engaged its participants in a variety of programs, tutorials, seminars and discussion events that together are guaranteed to charge the atmosphere with vibrant intellectual exchange. Think of it as a week-long summer university for the mind – remarkable lectures and classes across a stimulating array of topics.
Imagine some of the most inspired and provocative thinkers, writers, artists, business people, teachers, and other leaders drawn from myriad fields and from across the country and around the world – all gathered in a single place, ready to teach, speak, lead, question and answer – all interacting with an audience of thoughtful people who have stepped back from their day-to-day routines to delve deeply into a world of ideas, thought and discussion. The week promises to be thought-provoking, meaningful and fun – true to Aspen tradition.
