The University of Notre Dame’s Idea Week festival kicks off Friday with events on campus including a talk by Patti LuPone.
The festival runs until Sunday April 29th with presentations, competitions and entertainment.
Nick Swisher is with the Idea Center at Notre Dame, the group that’s putting on the festival. He said he hopes the event can grow to be like a South by Southwest for innovation.
“We’re really trying to, I wouldn’t necessarily copy South by Southwest but honor what it’s done.”
