The Institute of ideas is committed to:
The legacy of the Enlightenment: scientific and social experimentation, intellectual ambition and curiosity
Embracing change and making history
Art for art's sake, knowledge for its own sake, and education as an end in itself.
Freedom. To think, to act, to say what needs saying - even if it offends others Challenging irrational social panics Open and robust debate, in which ideas can be interrogated, argued for and fought over
Civil liberties, with no ifs or buts
