All are welcome! If you’re interested in social issues or want some intellectual stimulation, come to our salon!
A salon is a social gathering in which individuals come together to engage in the art of conversation and exchange ideas in pursuit of knowledge and fellowship.
Salon culture began in 16th century Italy and blossomed in 17th and 18th century Enlightenment Europe. Salons were traditionally founded on principles of egalitarianism and freedom of expression. They played a critical role in the development of a democratic, debate driven Public Sphere in Europe and were the catalyst of important intellectual, political, and artistic movements.
Here, we host salons around on various topics in areas such as philosophy, literature, politics, art, and culture. We bring people together to discuss ideas with the objective of creating community and advancing intellectual movements or projects relevant to the 21st century.
We encourage people of all backgrounds to join us. We will have a different topic each week of your choice to discuss. We hope that this environment will be engaging, stimulating and thought provoking through our conversations with each other. We will also provide a light meal and transition to potluck style as the group grows.
