NYC Salon is a free speaker series featuring interactive talks & experimental gatherings on science, society, art, ethics, and more.

We are a community of 5,000+ in fields like tech, the arts, science, journalism, law, activism, finance, and academia. Over the last 4 years, we have held over 100 events encompassing everything from aerospace medicine to art forgery to life as an entrepreneurship professor in North Korea. Speakers and attendees have together started companies, developed research partnerships, held gallery exhibitions, and other ventures. Our mission: to create opportunities for wonder, spontaneity, collaboration, and lifelong learning.
