Original Thinkers is an ideas festival that takes place in Mountain Village, Colorado during the first weekend of October. Over the course of the four-day festival, the OT community will gather and grow as they immerse themselves in the compelling mix of speakers, films, performance and art. Most festivals are designed for their audience to sit, watch, and listen. However, Original Thinkers programming will push people out of their comfort zones, leaving them energized and motivated. The weekend’s lineup consists of 10 shows, each of which are woven around a distinct and cogent theme that is examined through the essential intersection of idea and story.
