Real Talk Salon // connection + conversation in the hot tub
at The Battery SF (2018 dates TBA)
Real Talk Salon is a special evening for Battery women and their female guests to gather in the revitalizing and intimate setting of the Spa hot tub. Unlike a traditional panel, Real Talk Salon is an encouraging community and collective conversation where every woman has a seat at the table and her voice is heard. In the post-March era, we are seeing a revival of clubs and spaces that allow women to connect authentically, learn from one another and deepen relationships beyond surface-level ‘networking.’ Real Talk Salon seeks to strengthen the power of community for women at The Battery.
Our host, Kiki Federico, draws from 18th century French salons, where women had considerable influence as curators and mediators, guiding the conversations that shaped the cultural narratives of the times. Here, women could exchange ideas, receive feedback and engage in intellectual discourse otherwise reserved for men. Women will be encouraged to feel at ease in their bodies and share their stories, wisdom, opinions and ideas in a bubbling banter that is sure to stimulate the mind and feed the soul.
