Art of Conversation is a monthly social event held on a weekday from 4:30 pm - 7:30 pm during the last week of the month at a restaurant/bar in the Greater Edmonton area. The concept was created in 2006 by media personality Rob Christie and former Edmonton Sun columnist Graham Hicks with the goal of bringing people of diverse backgrounds together to engage in the rapidly vanishing art of face to face conversation.

Art of Conversation has collected a database of 2,500 attendees who are notified of each event via the AoC App. The event is open to everyone.

NEXT EVENT - January 31st

Soho (short for SOuth of HOuston Street) is an ultra trendy neighbourhood in Lower Manhattan, NYC. Lucky -and closer- for you, SOHO Is also a cool, new restaurant/bar with live music right here in Edmonton on Jasper Avenue!

Yeah, but how good is SOHO’s New York style thin crust pizza? It was voted #1 pizza in Edmonton by the Brotherhood of Plates. And co-owner Chris Curtola promises there’ll be plenty of “the  pie” for January’s Art of Conversation. The SOHO vibe is urban-bohemian. You can just picture Rober DeNiro, Jon Bon Jovi and JT yukking it up over Philly Cheesesteaks in one of the big red round leather booths. Unlike Manhattan, you’ll find a fair sized lot just east of SOHO with FREE parking. Bring a friend -you never know who you’ll meet!
