Salon culture

Salons have existed in many forms, and since a decade or so are in a revival phase. What most of these salons might be missing, is the participatory conversation culture, which is at the heart of this intention.

With the grassroots experience of founding and nurturing the Bregenzer Salon, I want to offer some experience and good practices, and invite others in to share their experience, so we can all learn from each other.

Here is some history from the field of "salons", that can inspire us. Let's look at some of the roots here. 

The core message is: A salon is a gathering of people under the roof of an inspiring host, held partly to amuse one another and partly to refine the taste and increase the knowledge of the participants through conversation.

In our fast moving world a salon can offer space for slowing down. It also works best when it creates and operates in a space between public and private. Anyone is invited to come and participate in personal capacity, and agrees to the proposed set of salon rules.
