FreeConvo is a platform that spontaneously builds community, bringing together people from all backgrounds as they pass by public space. We’ve met musicians, artists, scientists, professionals, entrepreneurs, vagabonds, travelers, entertainers, students and university professors to name a few. We’ve heard countless stories of entrepreneurship, love, traveling, friendship, pursuing dreams and developing wisdom.
Our guests have tagged us as “Bringing back the art of conversation” and “Changing the world one conversation at a time.” We can’t claim that ourselves but we strive to reach these goals set forth by our guests everyday. We are continuously surprised by how interesting and diverse the people that stop by are.
FreeConvo is driven by it’s volunteers who invite people to talk with them in their local communities. We first started in New York City but since have been joined by volunteers in Los Angeles, San Francisco and London . FreeConvo is a community center for modern fast paced society.
We love what we do and hope to meet you soon! Follow us to find out where we’re set up every weekend!
