Curiosity Fest, presented by Oklahoma Humanities, is a one-day festival full of fun, interactive and lifelong learning opportunities on Saturday, October 20, at noon. Twenty-four of Oklahoma’s top humanities scholars step out of their respective lecture halls to bring their fields of expertise to the audience in fresh ways.

Expect programming such as competitive book pitches; “appearances” by historical characters; conversations about race and social issues; discussions on comics, religious curiosity, Harry Potter, a “how to play” workshop; presentations by storytellers, historians and native voices; a live BrainBox podcast recording about Game of Thrones; discussions on the intersection of politics and religion, social justice, pop culture and more.

The final session of the day is NPR’s Jad Abumrad, founder of Radiolab. He presents his multimedia “Gut Churn” production, which shows how curiosity, often manifesting as a gut-wrenching question, leads to creative solutions and explains how uncertainty, fear and other negative emotions guide us in the creative process. Jad is popular with both radio listeners and podcast enthusiasts.

Come with an inquiring mind! Tickets at $38 with food samples available throughout the day.
