The Atlas Summit is an annual event that brings together the best minds of the open Objectivist movement for lectures, workshops, and shared inspiration. It is a week-long cultural feast, a marketplace of ideas, and a week of friendship and fellowship. It features courses, workshops, and performances that center of the Objectivist view of life. There are beginning and advanced courses on the philosophy founded by Ayn Rand. There are lectures on Rand's aesthetics and on Ayn Rand as an artist. There are explorations of the political, cultural, historical, and social implications of Objectivist ideas. And there are sessions on applying the insights of Objectivism as part of a happy, flourishing life.
The Atlas Society held its most recent annual celebration of open Objectivism over three full days June 29-July 1, 2012, in the elegant setting of the Renaissance Hotel, Washington, D.C.
