Founded in 1989 as a one day affair, the Chicago Humanities Festival has now blossomed into the 2 week long festival it is today. Starting October 29th, the festival’s series of events happening all over Chicago will showcase smart and entertaining presentations about ideas that matter. From art to politics to Chinese food culture to the history of sleep, these events tackle the most rule-bound ideas to the most existential ones.
Each event ranges between $10 – $12 or $5 for students and teachers. Shows include Andy Warhol’s Photographic Velocity, Trevor Noah: Born a Crime, The Future of Mobility, Jefferson’s Imaginaiton: Annette Gordon-Reed, Chicago’s Culture of Policing, Presto!
