The Institute of Ideas Academy is a three day residential retreat from Friday 20th July to Monday 23rd July, in which we aim to get away from the overly prescriptive nature of debate in society at large, and be unashamedly esoteric and intellectual for a weekend, in the pursuit of knowledge for its own sake.
