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.
Our salons are live, curated, and unrecorded 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 lively, global conversation without leaving your kitchen table, join Alaka Halder and her fellow hosts for an evening of:
- A fun, 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
Alaka has hosted salons on the future of democracy and cities, community building, and psychology. She also organizes monthly meetups in Austin, TX. Message her on Twitter with any questions or suggestions!
