A Nuit des idées event /
The first Nuit des Idées, held in Paris in January 2016, attracted thousands of people to the Quai d’Orsay, where they were invited to explore a lineup of 11 conferences and 30 public readings. 7,000 internet users followed the debates online.
Hailed as a unanimous success by the press, the French Institute then decided to throw itself into an unprecedented challenge, in terms of both shape and scale: to hold all of its Nuits des Idées on the same day – or rather the same night – around the whole world.
With one central theme: A Shared World.
In partership with MakeSense /
MakeSense is an open association that helps social and environmental projects to optimise their impact on our planet.
In 4 years and over the course of more than 1,120 workshops, they have mobilised over 20,000 people, providing support for over 1,000 projects in 100 towns and cities.
Following the initiation of their partnership in 2016, the European Lab will now serve as a dedicated venue for the association’s MakeSense Rooms.
The MKS Room is a format that mixes live performances by new artists with debates on art and social entrepreneurship. The initiative’s aim is to use music and culture to promote collaborative forms of entrepreneurship, and to make them accessible to all.
