The Urban Media Salon is a special discussion format and a monthly dinner encounter of a close cultural network. It brings together interested experts from various disciplines, to debate the reciprocity of urban space and current media phenomena. We aim to establish a vivid discourse around the growing impact of New Media on our cities. Exclusive local and international guests are regularly invited to these private Salon discussions to inspire and support progress.

Each evening one person leads and sets a focus of the discourse or presents his work for discussion. The intimate atmosphere around the dinner table with a limited number of 10 participants shall provide a space for intense exchange through an honest and shared discussion, catalyzed through the social aspect of food and drinks.
We want to connect people face to face to facilitate a vivid discourse. The rules are

- the Salonière provides simple food, the guests bring the drinks
- be prepared with ideas and comments to engage in a lively exchange
- be open, respectful and fair in discussion and make it short.
