Conversation is an integral part to any salon event.Organized salons are one way to reclaim the valuable art of organic conversation and an authentic way to uncover new movements; that can be forged through a collective collaboration.
This is why we pair up these short documentaries with a panel of speakers and interactive components of a salon, where the audience can engage, ask questions and learn more about issues we face here in our own community and globally. Speakers, short documentaries, draw prizes, a slient auction and a networking lobby ~ a night of empowerment.
