Hosted in Partnership With

Aspen Institute

On May 7, 2013, the second annual New York Ideas forum gathered cutting-edge innovators with a simple goal: to draw out the strands of genius from leaders whose work and passions are changing our world. Taking place at the New York Historical Society, New York Ideas brought together over 600 New York and national thought leaders. Through interviews, panels, debates, displays, and break out sessions, we showcased the trends, innovations, and technologies driving the business, political and cultural landscape.
