Event Details

Big Ideas Fest 2018 - Democratizing Access to Education

Big Ideas Fest, is a unique three-day gathering focused on creating solutions and taking action within an inspiring and immersive design environment. This year’s theme, Democratizing Access to Education, is about addressing timely issues impacting education, such as access to knowledge, information justice, affordability, basic needs, and cultural inclusion. In partnership with our co-host Creative Commons USA, at American University Washington College of Law, we’ll examine core assumptions and values that we hold true, and determine who, how, and what is needed if we truly intend to democratize access to education for all.

Produced by ISKME, Big Ideas Fest is a global gathering designed to encourage cross-fertilization of ideas, featuring innovators who provide first-hand accounts of how a simple spark of curiosity and empathy fueled remarkable change; as well as ample time to network with other participants, and Action Collab design thinking workshops that engage small groups to collaboratively brainstorm, prototype, and ultimately test solutions to challenges in education.
