Night of Ideas (Nuit des Idées) - 26th January 2017
Over time, numerous events have given the public the opportunity to meet researchers, artists and creators so as to discover their work and share their thoughts and ideas. On January 26th 2017, the Institut Français takes this debating culture one step further by linking all these Nuit des Idées (Night of Ideas) on the same day, or rather the same night, organised by Embassies all around the world. The French Ministry of Foreign Affairs is coordinating these events worldwide and will also open the doors of its famous Quai d’Orsay to debaters from all domains for a night long session of discussions on the same date.
The French Institute of South Africa (IFAS) invites you to a debate on "Art for Art’s Sake and Science for Science’s Sake. Must they always serve a purpose?" This event will take place at the Market Theatre Photo Workshop with four speakers: Ismail Mahomed, CEO of the Market Theatre Foundation, Lawrence Lemaoana, artist and lecturer at UNISA, Sarah Wild, science journalist, and Cynthia Kros, historian and heritage specialist, under the guidance of Michelle Constant as moderator.
Time: Debate at 7 pm
Venue: The Market Theatre Photo Workshop, 138 Lillian Ngoyi street, opposite the Market Theatre. Safe parking at Newtown Junction mall.
