A RiverArts Salon is a (virtual) place for lively conversation that is physically distant but socially connected. Salons provide a forum and structure for a rich exchange of thoughts and ideas that goes a little bit deeper than small talk, and gives everyone something new and interesting to consider.

Tuesdays from 5 - 5:45, on Zoom
