“Conversation is free – but it’s invaluable,” says Ron Gross, founder of Conversations New Yorkwhich last year held the first Conversation Day on 42nd Street, with partners in London, Paris, and Tokyo


Great talk deepens our humanity – and strengthens our communities. Gathering in a circle to make meaning, has empowered our species in every era and culture. We have never needed it more than today!


At this participatory event, you’ll learn how you can join the movement to turn away from our devices and towards each other – for delight, understanding, and social progress.
