artists and scientists together for informal presentations and conversation with
the audience. Each evening event, free of charge and open to the public, will
present four artists, scientists, thinkers, inventors, and scholars who are
working on paradigm shifts. Each evening also allows the audience to socialize
and encourages people in the audience to briefly introduce their own work.
