“Small minds discuss people. Great minds discuss ideas.”
The Living Room Series is inspired by 18th century French salons where a cross-section of society would gather to discuss ideas and share their passion for the arts.
Through our events, we aim to gather people with different backgrounds to expand everyone's perspective through words and stories.

Q: What Can I expect?
Come with an open mind and get ready for a unique experience.
Unlike traditional events where there is a clear divide between the performer and the audience, the Living Room Series invites active participation from everyone in the room. Our capacity is intentionally limited to maintain an intimate setting.
Attendees are encouraged to engage in dialogue with others, and chime in during intermission breaks and panel sessions. We also allocate extra time at the end of the event to facilitate discussions with other attendees. In short: there will be lots of great discussion.

Q: What is a Mini Series?
Between our large scale events, we host smaller gatherings to allow everyone to discuss and explore topics in detail. These are generally no more than 15 people to allow for meaningful conversations.
And yes, these are sometimes hosted in an actual living room. Come with an open mind, be open to sharing and listening as well.
Q: What kind of topics do you cover?
We design our events to encourage attendees to listen, think and reflect on topics that are not normally discussed in day-to-day conversation, but are, in fact, some of the most impactful topics on a personal level. These topics range anywhere from identity, relationships, rejection to vulnerability.
