THE FINE ART OF CONVERSATION WITH DU'S ESTEEMED FACULTY

The practice of "salon-going" dates back to the 17th century when many of the intellectual leaders of the day congregated in private homes to discuss the latest thinking and artistic developments. These early salons were also said to be breeding grounds for social movements and revolutions because they attracted political activists promoting social agitation and reform. 

Today's University of Denver salons are just as stimulating, albeit less explosive.

About 20 people meet in a private home with an esteemed DU faculty member to learn and exchange ideas.

Lively discussion fills the air, time flies, and you'll leave feeling energized, enriched and connected in a truly human way.

Wine and light appetizers are provided. All salon events are hosted at private residences. The host's address is shared upon registration.
