Iowa Ideas Conference to be Held in October

Registration is now open for the October 13-14 Iowa Ideas Conference. This online event will connect fellow Iowans for two days of listening, sharing and building on issues that will shape the future of our state. The conference, which was initiated in 2016 by The Gazette newspaper in Cedar Rapids, is free and open to all.

For 2022, Iowa Ideas will include an Arts & Culture track. This year's conference will host important sessions about the rural, urban and regional benefit to arts, culture and entertainment in Iowa, and the keynote speaker for this new track will be international opera star and Iowa native Simon Estes.
