The Conversations at The Interval
Interval events are lectures and discussions about topics including art, design, history, nature, technology, and time. They take place on Tuesday nights a couple times a month and feature artists, authors, entrepreneurs, scientists, and others who take a long-term perspective.
Below you'll find information about upcoming and previous talks. All events are recorded and will eventually be released. There is video and audio of a selection of our past talks on this site. We also have nearly 200 videos in our Seminar series which you can watch for free.

Tickets go on sale to Long Now members two weeks in advance and then to the public. Most talks sell out quickly due to our small capacity. "Patron tickets" are available after other tickets sell out; they include a reserved seat and are partially tax deductible. A live videostream of each talk is free to Long Now members at http://longnow.org/live.
Check-in starts at 6:30pm and events begin at 7:30; we reopen to the public at 8:30pm
