The IAI School is aimed at pre-university students who have an interest in critical thinking and want to broaden their understanding of what higher education offers beyond the national curriculum. Following its continuing successes both online and at our physical festivals, the IAI School returns to HowTheLightGetsIn Hay 2022 where a host of leading academics will inspire the next generation. As well as our exclusive IAI School programme (see below), tickets allow access to the rest of the HowTheLightGetsIn festival talks, debates, comedy and music.


"I'm so impressed by the work of the IAI School. Their programme is precisely the sort of thing I wish I'd done at school. While I missed out, students now are set to be stimulated and inspired" - Bruce Daisley, Vice-President EMEA of Twitter


For a limited time we are offering schools that bring a group to Hay 2022 an institutional subscription to our online library of thousands of debates, articles, solo talks and interviews at a 90% discount.


If you represent a school or institution who would like to make a group booking for the IAI School, or enquire about an institutional subscription, please email us at education@artandideas.org for more information.
