Why the theme RISE?

Rise to the challenge! Rise up! Rise and shine! Any way you look at it, rise is a little verb packing some serious positivity. And, with today’s global digital culture delivering what can seem like an endless stream of bad news, some serious positivity sounds downright empowering. This year’s event is dedicated to great thinkers who’ve dared to believe we can build a better world by calling on that power. Their ideas have—in some way great or small—suggested it’s possible to trade the heaviness of hopelessness, resentment and self-preservation for the lightness of anticipation, curiosity and self-sacrifice. Join in for a day dedicated to transcending the past and transforming the future. RISE —get ready to celebrate Ideas That Elevate!

The Huntington Library

The library was founded in 1919 by Henry E. Huntington—a future-minded man with a rare passion for spreading beauty in imagery and word.


His passion, together with the hard work and dedication of countless lovers of knowledge over the past one hundred years, has created what is today one of the finest cultural, research and educational centers in the world.
