NonSalon - an event series by Paloma Powers

Paloma Powers's NonSalon pairs artists and visionaries across disciplines to explore urgent topics – from design to ecology, food to comedy.  NonSalons take the form of conversations, screenings, workshops, dinners, and other experimental formats, and arose from Paloma’s ability to matchmake talent across industries and forecast emergent cultural trends and forces. 

Expect the unexpected and exchange business cards and world domination plans with our network. Stay tuned for a #NonSalon near you, via our newsletter and Facebook.  (Image above by Shawn Maximo)
