The Living Room Series First Event of 2018!

Well, even though last week wore me down, it was also extremely rewarding.  The Living Room Series had its first mini series event in Vancouver for 2018.  What is the Living Room Series you ask?  It's inspired by 18th century French salons where a cross-section of society would gather to discuss ideas and share their passion for music and arts.  Through our events, we aim to gather people with different lives, backgrounds and stories to expand everyone's perspective and build a community through music, art, and words.  In the peak of the digital age, it's so easy to get got up in the online world.  We aim to bring back the days where substantive ideas are discussed in person and where music and art are expressed in its purest form without the cacophony of background noise.

As 2017 winds down and we look ahead to 2018, I thought it would be fitting to share the 5 key takeaways.
