Chicago Ideas Week
Our premier daylong event is now open to the public.
Join us a Edison Talks this year, where we’ll explore our theme, the Uncharted, with more than a dozen speakers and performers who are pushing boundaries in their fields.
Exploring the uncharted not only requires courage, empathy and perseverance. It must also be fueled by curiosity, diligence and discipline.
It is looking upward and outward to imagine dimensions not yet within our consciousness. It is letting go of expectation and opening yourself to endless possibility. It is often riddled with inefficiency, experimentation and failure, but if you postpone judgment and embrace the unknown, the rewards include fresh perspectives, breakthroughs, insights and serendipitous encounters. It is discovery. When we choose mapping over tracing, we begin to realize that endpoints do not exist. It’s simply the ends of the known.
