DASS I Downtown Arts + Science Salon
We are a combination of open university and a local social club. The place to exchange ideas on scientific innovations, technological trends, books, art, and society.
Our campus is Downtown Miami's iconic venues, theaters, museums, clubs, colleges, and outstanding residential towers such as the PARAMOUNT Miami Worldcenter and the Gallery at the Waldorf Astoria.
