The Salisbury Forum, Inc. , Where Ideas Come Together, is a regional forum for the exchange of ideas and information regarding topics which affect our lives in the community, region, nation and the world. We sponsor four or five public meetings a year, drawing upon nationally-recognized speakers.

The mission of the Salisbury Forum is to bring you expert speakers and documentary films that 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. All of our programs are free to the public. You can sample our most recent talks by going to the attached video links.

We invite you to send us your comments, support the Salisbury Forum with your contribution, and join us at our programs.

Admission to Salisbury Forum events is free, thanks to the generosity of our sponsors and donors.

We’d love to welcome you.

Mary Close Oppenheimer
