Because It's There: an IQ2 Festival on Mountains

What do mountains represent to humanity? Come join us for a festival on mountains

It will be a one evening-only exploration of what mountains represent to humanity. From mountains’ place in literature to how they shape history, from providing sublime nourishment for the soul to fuelling mountaineers’ addiction to vertigo, the festival will combine the IQ2 tradition of debate and discussion with film, photography and literature.
