Salon~360 co-moderators Z.Hall and Joe Gauer welcome guest presenters who are artists from disparate disciplines and levels of activism. We will learn about their creativity in relation to their art, their process, and the affect their art has on those who experience it. Together, we will discuss the important roll art plays in social activism and society, in relation to the individual, and how our art can and does effect social change.

The ‘Art Activism’ event is potluck and BYOB! Please bring one covered dish and your favorite beverage. We apologize for being unable to accommodate children.
Salon~360 participants watch performances or hear talks, then participate in lively discussions around societal issues, which inspire the creation of original collaborative projects among participants across disciplines. Salon~360 fosters community and growth around issues facing society. It is a welcoming space for working ideas out in the public sphere that lead to cross pollination among creatives on new projects.
In this safe, comfortable, and creative space members of the broader community engage with professional artists, business people, scholars, and scientists who may have been inaccessible to them outside of Salon~360. Our events begin with a brief presentation by an invited guest, then there is a moderated dialogue among attendees. Like the salons of Early Modern and Revolutionary France, Salon~360 is a hub of artistic, intellectual development, and cultural exchange, hosting local and international guests and participants.
