Viewpoints

Join as we delve into some of the most innovative ideas, thoughtful leaders, and provoking conversations around — the viewpoints of those who inspire us. Among the trailblazers we are engaging in this programming, we count presidential historian and author Jon Meacham and MacArthur “genius” grant awardee and public health entrepreneur Rebecca Onie. You can expect a varied, thought-provoking group of speakers who will enrich our conversations long after the Festival. You’ll discover new approaches in philanthropy and leadership, and how to transform habits to improve our lives. Learn how history proves that democracy isn’t broken and hear life lessons from the world’s greatest composers. Here we offer sessions that don’t belong in any of our thematic tracks, but are too good to miss.
