SunSets co-founders Andrea Boston & Nia Johnson speak on the creation, importance, challenges of the monthly salon gathering.
About the speaker
SunSets is a monthly salon gathering that connects Baltimore’s creative community for an evening of artistic expression and collaboration.
The space is a tribute to the cultural salons that nurtured the artists and thinkers of the Harlem Renaissance. Each month, guests are invited into a new location for discussion with featured artists, intergenerational connection, a little wine, and live music.
SunSets is a space where participants can “take off their cool”, be themselves, and tap into new ideas.
