NY Salon

The NY Salon is delighted to be sponsoring a session at the Battle of Ideas this year, as well as having numerous NY Salon members speaking at sessions throughout the weekend. With a commitment to thrashing out the arguments in an atmosphere of intellectual rigour and honesty, we have found that the Battle of Ideas provides an environment that is lively and stimulating. Indeed, the NY Salon aims to help create a similar setting in New York.

"The arts and humanities need to be defended and we must fight for the freedom to extend barriers, not merely to work within them. What better arena than The Battle of Ideas?"
