Downtown Arts + Science Salon - DASS

A combination of open university and a local social club–in the historical sense, a place to exchange ideas on scientific innovations, technological trends, books, art, and society. DASS is the place to take a break from virtual reality, and rediscover live- conversation over a glass of wine, or two.

   What the Media Said?

Drawing on the concept of the salon, which flourished during the European Enlightenment and enjoyed a heyday during the Parisian jazz age of Fitzgerald and Gertrude Stein, DASS stages discussions ranging from science to literature and music.  The Florida Book Review.
