The Beacon Salon Series


The Beacon Salon Series is an educational outreach program of Beacon College. The series — which channels the spirit of intellectual discourse of the French salons of the Enlightenment — invites the Central Florida community to partake in lifelong learning at the feet of respected scholars, to enrich their souls through the beauty and vibrancy of visual and performing arts, and to weigh new perspectives on old issues through lectures from breakthrough authors and national speakers.

The series presents three programs: The Speaker Series, which features speakers and artists from Florida and around the United States who provide liberal arts-centered lectures/performances; the Lecture Series, which stars Beacon College faculty and instructors who challenge attendees with compelling discussions, and the Forums Series, which periodically assembles thoughtful panels to dissect, discuss, and debate important current issues of the day.

Beacon Salon events are free and open to the public.
