Salon Series

Salon Series

Salons are a time-honoured forum for discussion and exchange of ideas. Vancouver+Acumen is continuing this tradition by hosting a monthly series of salons inspired by the values and principles of Acumen.


Each dinner hosts 20-25 people coming from all different backgrounds – graphic designers to bankers, non-profit founders to students… and of course, Vancouver+Acumen chapter volunteers. It’s about the exchange of new ideas between people from all walks of life who want to be a part of something bigger than themselves.


The purpose of Salons is to make meaningful conversations happen between inspiring and inspired individuals. Each Salon has a different theme and will be based on a set of readings and videos related to that theme. These will vary from short stories to historical speeches and range across international and local topics. You never know where the conversation will take you (or where you will take the conversation!). We promise you’ll come away with new perspectives and a better connection to the world around us.


We host our Salons on the last Tuesday of every month.


We dine at local venues that share our values and demonstrate moral leadership within their communities.


Acumen is dedicated to inspiring moral leadership. These dinners spur your imagination and challenge you to think about poverty, business and the relationship that exists between them in new ways. They’re a great place to meet new people that are interested in social enterprise.


Contact us below and let us know if you’d like to be on the invite list for future Salons. We host events once every two months and sell advanced tickets through Evenbrite. Each multi-course dinner is around $30. Once registered you will receive the reading and video content via email along with an overview of what to expect throughout the evening.
