Cultural journalism, rain forest and ocean ecology, botany and mindfulness, urban hiking, organizations like Tree People and Friends of the L.A. River, practices of community historiography, music from Jessica Fichot, dance from Heidi Duckler, VR experiences, film screenings, and so many more creative expressions are on offer at the Natural History Museum’s 2020 edition of Night of Ideas. The compelling NHM collections themselves form the perfect backdrop for this convergence of interdisciplinary thought on the theme of “Being Alive,” especially at the intersection of personal and planetary wellness.
