A Renaissance of Salon Culture

The Art of Conversation, The Exchange of Ideas, and Poetic Experiences to Re-enchant the World

In the spirit of the ancient Greek agora and Enlightenment salon culture, the Public Sphere strengthens community by revitalizing the art of conversation, fostering the exchange of ideas and meaningful social interaction in physical space. Founded on values of equality and solidarity, we organize salon events around the world that actively engage citizens in critical issues shaping society, culture, art and politics.
