Join the Making of Online Courses With Some Dangerous Minds

As previously posted on Disinfo, The Institute of Art and Ideas have started an educational platform called IAI Academy with free online courses from world-leading scholars on the ideas that matter.

The physical version of the IAI Academy, where the courses are filmed in front of a live audience, takes place at the HowTheLightGetsIn festival for philosophy and music. This year’s version runs from 21st to 31st May in Hay-on-Wye in Wales and will add Academy courses on everything from how culture affects mental illness with the president of the World Psychiatric Association Dinesh Bhugra to how AI will change our societies by the Data Editor of the Economist Kenneth Cukier.

All courses from last year’s Academy can be found here, and the full programme for this year’s festival courses here. The festival itself is 11 days of big thinking and music with over 200 world-leading speakers including Lawrence Krauss, Roger Penrose and Paul Krugman, and 270 artists such as Lianne la Havas, Mike Skinner and Rae Morris.
