IdeaFestival University offers a new way to sustain spirit of the annual IdeaFestival all year long.
IF University holds small, very interactive, seminar-style courses in non-traditional classrooms– from coffeeshops to offices to bars. Each class is a discrete unit, reasonably priced, and led by experts in their field, according to a news release.
According to the IFUniversity website:
Ideas are everywhere, and anywhere can be a classroom. More than a place, IF University is an ecosystem of learning, creative thinking and innovation, built on the platform and success of the annual IdeaFestival in Louisville. A wide variety of classes and events all year round.
Teach a class. Take a class. Suggest a class.
Gather. Discuss. Learn. Repeat.
Play a lot. Pay a little. Come often.
There are upcoming classes– one in Lexington and three in Louisville including a class with Insider Louisville Founder Terry Boyd on the covert worlds of the military and intelligence agencies.
