Original Thinkers


The 4th annual Original Thinkers Festival will take place in Telluride, September 30-October 3 at the historic Sheridan Opera House. This immersive and intimate gathering looks at the intersection of story and idea. OT’s carefully curated programming gives you real time and space to connect with these big ideas and with each other, amidst the stunning landscape of Telluride. There will be six shows over the weekend, starting Thursday evening and going into Sunday midday, which you can read about here. Besides these carefully curated shows, there will also be a panoply of other talks, events and experiences throughout the weekend at the Telluride Transfer Warehouse. A virtual pass is also included. 

VIRTUAL SHOWS, October 1-31

If you can’t join us in person, you can participate in Original Thinkers from anywhere in the world through our virtual program, which will be live for a month allowing you to take your time exploring these 10 Big Ideas.
