Tickets are sold out!

This is good news – we are happy that so many people are interested in hearing Prof Pardy speak! And not so good news because we can’t host more people. A waitlist option has been activated on the Eventbrite ticket portal. We will help to arrange for transfers between ticket holders and our waitlist.

Please feel free to donate to the organization so we can continue to bring you more interesting speakers in the near future! And we are seeking silent auction contributions – if you have something to contribute please let us know at info@theideasinstitute.org.
