First started in 2007, Z+Z ran The Salon from their Hoxton studio, at that time as a monthly event. The Salon is an opportunity to break bread with artists, writers, musicians, scientists, performers, adventurers; a club where collaborations form and cultural innovators gather to feast upon new ideas. Now held aboard the ship De Walvisch, The Salon has expanded from its early days to include live performance and presentations from leading experts in a wide range of fields and has been the catalyst for many creative collaborations. True to Z+Z’s adherence to the ideas of “radical Physicalism”, The Salon promotes live experience and in-person interaction, guests become Salon members and in turn nominate future participants.
