 GET IN the mix 

Elixir Salon is the first event of its kind. We merge aesthetics and philosophy with live performance art. We challenge attendees and participants alike with groundbreaking ideas, provocative visuals, and live music. We bring together like-minds interested in collaboration and beyond.

Welcome to our museum of cultural oddities. We invite you to taste our distinguished online event of intellectual intrigue. We know that our strength lies not only in digital theater initiatives but showcasing of bold creatives, philosophers, visionary technologists, artists, social scientists, sexy scapegoats, performers, independent writers, heterodox thinkers, filmmakers, photographers, cultural architects, fashion designers, classical art enthusiasts, architects, and historians.

Enter our sacred event space. We spotlight curiosity, courage, candidness, and craze. Immerse yourself in our art exhibits and groundbreaking talks. Engage with the frontier of emerging culture. Free your mind. Explore your senses. Participate in our roundtable discussions.
