The six nights will be split into 3 different categories, with each category getting 2 nights. The categories are as follows: The Education Revolution, War & Peace and Science & Wonder. Each night will be a mix of talks, performances, short films and more. Author and comedian Baratunde Thurston is set to host the event.
