About the event
Taking place from February to April, the Institute of Art and Ideas – the organisation described by Total Politics as ‘Europe’s answer to TED’ – has today announced a new trio of unique live events at renowned cultural venue The Store at 180 The Strand, home to London Fashion Week 2017.
This event will be followed up by The Self and Selfie on March 6th. Exposing the fine line between narcissism and genius, this exciting evening of contemporary debate will analyse the way we view vanity, arrogance and creative genius in the world of Generation Selfie. Salvador Dali once quipped there was no greater joy than waking up as himself. Does focussing on yourself rather than others really bring happiness and success? Or does self-obsession damage social cohesion?
Boasting stellar evenings of debate, discussion, music and performance, the IAI’s Spring Store Events will bring world leading thinkers together for an inspiring evening exploring the ideas that matter - all set in the world renowned creative-space of The Store at 180 The Strand in London.
