    The East Midlands Salon like those that currently exist in Brighton, Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham, New York and Lisbon is inspired by the Institute of Ideas. The IoI is committed to: (1) The legacy of the Enlightenment: scientific and social experimentation, intellectual ambition and curiosity; (2) Embracing change and making history; (3) Art for art’s sake, knowledge for its own sake, and education as an end in itself. (4) Freedom. To think, to act, to say what needs saying – even if it offends others; (5) Challenging irrational social panics; (6) Open and robust debate, in which ideas can be interrogated, argued for and fought over Civil liberties, with no ifs or buts
