The Washington Ideas Forum 2014. Hosted in partnership with the The Atlantic, the Washington Ideas Forum has developed a reputation for fostering creative thinking about the critical issues affecting our national identity, politics, and core values. Celebrating our six-year anniversary, we relaunched our flagship program at the stunning Harman Center of the Arts. A mix of programming on multiple stages, preview sessions, and custom events covered topics ranging from energy and technology to health care and urban renewal.
