A night for women – and men

Out-of-the-ordinary women come together to discuss social, family, ethical and artistic issues – and create ‘a world in common.’

Around two-and-a-half millennia ago, Greek savant Plato suggested that thinking is “the talking of the soul with itself.” There will be plenty of cerebrally-driven dialogue on offer at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art on Thursday evening, when the French Institute of Israel presents the “Night of Ideas – A World in Common: Out-of-Ordinary Women” event. There may even be some soul-baring, too.

The free program, in French and Hebrew, kicks off at 6:30 p.m., running until midnight, and will feature panel discussions, talks and musical entertainment that look at life from a female perspective, although not exclusively so. The proceedings will open with words from the host venue’s director and chief curator Suzanne Landau, followed by greetings from Barbara Wolffer, cultural counselor and director of the French Institute of Israel.
