IdeaFestival believes that “individuals don’t have to be geographically or socially privileged to have great ideas and create positive change.” Which is why experts are invited from all over the country to speak at this festival, to explore and celebrate the new or radical ideas that promise to be “disruptive catalyst[s] for innovation.”  This year’s guest speakers include author Jamie Holmes, actress and recording artist Janelle Monae and MIT professor Christine Ortiz. It’s a chance to be  challenged mentally and inspired to think outside your comfort zone.
