Uncharted: The Berkeley Festival of Ideas is coming to downtown Berkeley on Oct. 24-25.
But what is an ideas festival? What happens there? Why should you come? Check out the snappy video above which was created to answer those questions, and more.
Uncharted, which takes place on Friday Oct. 24 and Saturday Oct. 25, aims to bring participants together with some of the world’s great thinkers for two thrilling days of discussion, debate, and workshops designed to engage and inspire. Much more than a series of lectures, Uncharted is a festival of ideas.
Participants will meet fascinating big thinkers, including Nobel prizewinner Randy Schekman, Pulitzer and Grammy Award-winning composer John Adams, acclaimed chef Tanya Holland, and marriage equality pioneers Kris Perry and Sandy Stier.
Held at the Berkeley Rep and the Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse, with a Friday night party at the beautiful University Club, perched atop of Cal’s Memorial Stadium, Uncharted promises to be one of the most exciting events in the Bay Area this year.
Uncharted is offered at a fraction of the cost of other “ideas festivals.” Right now, those who register to attend can save $100 over 2013 prices.
