What if you’re an Interintellect, but you just don’t know it yet…?
Every day, we come together from across the world to talk about philosophy and science, art and technology, finance and history, religion and music: all the thoughts and emotions we experience as humans, without judgment or certificates. Sometimes we play games, share music, or paint together. We also gather globally in parks and cafes, from Austin to Zurich, and host hybrid events to introduce each other to unique locations.
Salons are live, curated discussions that our community ensures are patient, thought-provoking and fun. Come join us in making the world’s conversations better and make lifelong friends in the process!
If you’ve ever wanted to host a series of lively, global conversation without leaving your kitchen table, join Jason Crawford for an evening of:
- A casual, campfire conversation over Zoom where we talk about what draws us to Interintellect
- Icebreakers where we share our wonderful and weird interests
- Discussion on motivations for hosting: foster interesting discussions, receive feedback on creative projects, build a career as a public intellectual, make friends, and more
- Guidance on making friends in the community and beginning your journey as a host, from choosing a topic to facilitating an event
- A promise that we’ll welcome you gently with open arms, and that we’ll support you every step of the way
Jason Crawford is writing a book about the world of industry and infrastructure, and how it was invented. In his salon series entitled ‘The Story of Industrial Civilization: Towards a New Philosophy of Progress’, he explores the content from his book together with fellow interintellects, chapter by chapter, giving an inside look at the author’s creative process. Each salon opens with his research and writing on the topic so far, followed by discussion and Q&A.
Jason will share his experience hosting the series so far, and answer your questions about how to create your own salons and join our community of curious people from around the world for interesting conversations.
