Mindshare LA holds monthly workshops, salons and movie screenings that gather hundreds of Angelenos for evenings of inspiration and interaction. Our main, monthly salon event includes a curated program of short, eclectic presentations.
Over the years Mindshare has become a mecca for intellectuals, artists, scientists and other progressive characters to broaden their perspective and find community in this vast city. Check out our upcoming events!
The real value of Mindshare LA lies in the in person experience so we don’t put many of our talks online. But here’s a couple to show you what to expect!
