Like the Ancient Greek agora (marketplace) before it, during the Enlightenment era in Europe salons were public gatherings where philosophical dialogue took place, ideas exchanged, concepts debated, and fellowship fostered. In essence, the salon was a community of enquiry. Now, in the Information Age, Project WHY? is committed to reviving salon-style gatherings in order to foster critical and collaborative understanding of concepts, their implications, and concrete applications within Canadian culture.
