The inaugural New York Ideas, organized by The Atlantic, the Aspen Institute, and the New-York Historical Society, was a day-and-a-half long event with a constellation of leaders - in the roles of attendees, provocateurs, and speakers. The event took on the largest issues of the day - through interviews, discussions, and debates. It recognized New York’s status as a major actor in all of the significant policy issues facing the country.
In 2005, two thought leadership powerhouses – The Atlantic and the Aspen Institute – came together to host the inaugural Aspen Ideas Festival – a celebratory and deeply-inquisitive public discourse on the most important issues facing the world. In 2009, the hugely-successful Festival spawned a “sibling” program – the Washington Ideas Forum. This groundbreaking gathering of newsmakers and journalists has developed a distinct reputation for fostering original dialogue about critical issues in Washington and beyond.
On April 17, 2012, The Atlantic and the Aspen Institute once again come together to host an event dedicated to intelligent conversation and debate, this time in New York City at the New-York Historical Society.
