I’ve always loved the idea of the salons of Jazz-Age Paris where the creative innovators and thinkers of the day would gather and exchange ideas, birthing artistic movements and social enlightenment. And having fun in the process.

The seed for these salons was planted when my cousin was struggling to choose a path after high school. I thought if she could speak for a few minutes with friends of mine in various professions across the arts and sciences, she’d be inspired to find her path. I was amazed by how many people were eager to share what they loved about their work. We’ve created these salons because everyone should have access to inspiration. You never know what will change your path.

Join us:
We’re live on Zoom most Tuesdays at 5pm Pacific/8pm Eastern for a series of conversations with inspiring people. Depending on the featured guest, the talk may take the form of a lecture or a Q&A. Both styles open up for audience questions toward the end. We have a limit of 100 participants per Salon, so please register early if you see something you don’t want to miss.

Hearthside Salons are free for everyone, and archived as podcasts available for download.
