Taliesin Talks is a new, free weekly series of live-streamed conversations and interactive discussions offering digital audiences an exciting new avenue to learn about and discuss topics related to the work of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation and the Wright legacy of architecture and design.
The talks will be hosted by Foundation staff in conjunction with leading experts and past collaborators from around the world. The featured guests will come from a variety of different disciplines and share a passion for innovation, which builds from Frank Lloyd Wright’s legacy of forward thinking.
The hour-long conversations will span a wide range of exciting and engaging topics, from preservation to performing and visual arts, to space exploration! Viewers will have the opportunity to ask on-the-spot questions and engage with hosts in a way they haven’t before. Each talk will be broadcast live on the Foundation’s Facebook page and saved for viewing after the livestream.
As many sites have recently had to close their doors to the public due to COVID-19, the Foundation hopes that virtual initiatives like that of Taliesin Talks or the popular Wright Virtual Visits will invite more people into the Wright community with a wide array of topics that demonstrate the vast scope of the Frank Lloyd Wright legacy.
