Night of Ideas | More? Slow is Beautiful

Over 110 people gathered to hear speakers and artists at the Night of Ideas 2023 held on February 1. This annual event takes place in 200 cities initiated by French embassies around the world with local partners. In Vancouver, organizers from the French Consulate, PWIAS, and Alliance Francaise, developed the theme of More? Slow is Beautiful, to encourage participants to consider how acceleration in our current society or in their respective field has impacted behaviour, emotional state and imagination, and how the notion of slowness may provide an antidote.
