NYC Salon is a speaker series that aims to be "TED with friends".
Over three years ago, we started inviting people with novel insights or interesting projects in art, economics, science, technology, and comedy to give talks about their work and process, and have been meeting every other Tuesday since then.
Engaging deeply with the material and getting to know other attendees is a core principle of NYC Salon, so after each talk, we break up into small groups and dive into fun activities related to the talk.
Our speakers have gone on to give talks at TED, the UN, and at the World Bank. Our goal is to create opportunities for spontaneity, collaboration, and lifelong learning.
