HOW WE CURATE CONTENT FOR OUR PARISOMA [X] SERIES

Exclusive & New
PARISOMA X classes explore cutting edge technologies and trends that are not yet mainstream, even in San Francisco. Each teacher has a unique perspective and real expertise to be able to provide first hand insights into the topic and its poten- tial impact on various industries.

Fresh & Controversial
In a 2 hour session, each PARISOMA X class will break down these controversial topics in a sharp and lively manner.

Social & Intimate
Each session is intended to be interactive, social, and collaborative. Because of this, we limit each class to 25 attendees to allow the participants to get the most out of each class.

Actionable & Concrete
These discussion oriented classes are designed to introduce new trends and leave participants with an understanding of the topic and the implications for their personal or professional use. The outcome of these classes can result in food for thought, suggested readings.
