The Salisbury Forum is a regional meeting place for the exchange of ideas and information. Approximately six times a year we sponsor nationally recognized speakers in free public forums. We also sponsor one or two documentary film screenings followed by question and answer periods.

Our mission is to engage and inform you about topics in the news and on our minds. They may give you a deeper understanding of an issue of importance, delight you with poetry or humor or challenge you to consider an unfamiliar subject.

We hope you will explore our website to learn about our programs and to get a sense of the breadth and scope of Forum events. You can sample our most recent talks by going to the attached video links.

We’re able to keep admission to Salisbury Forum events free thanks to the generosity of our sponsors and donors. We invite you to send us your comments, support the Salisbury Forum with your contribution, and join us at our programs.

We’d love to welcome you.

Mary Close Oppenheimer
