Twelve-year-old Max Lerman has been coming to Chautauqua all of his life, but this summer is different. Now, he’s not only a part of Chautauqua Institution’s physical community, but its social media community as well.
Week Seven’s morning lecture series “A Week with Ken Burns: Historian, Documentarian and American Conscience” was a hit with Chautauquans who eagerly filled the Amp to capacity. Take a look at what people have to say about Week Seven.
In Week Five, Chautauqua examined “The American West.” Interfaith lectures explored the West’s religious innovations and evolution, and performances like the “Go West!” and “The Ballad of Baby Doe” brought the characters of the American West to Chautauqua. Here’s what people were up to in Week Five:
In Week Three, the Chautauqua Institution explored the ethics of privacy from the media and government to social media platforms. Experience the Week Three morning lectures and speakers all over again through the Chautauquans busy tweeting and Instagramming in this week’s Storify recap.
Opening the 2014 season at Chautauqua Institution, author Roger Rosenblatt began each morning lecture with speakers close to his heart and craft. Experience the Week One morning lectures all over again through the Chautauquans busy tweeting and Instagramming in this week’s Storify recap.
Leslie Tryon first visited Chautauqua in July 1988 as a participant in the Highlights for Children writers’ workshop. In an article submitted to The Chautauquan Daily, Tryon shares the story of winning the Institution’s annual poetry contest, and the impact “a week of innovation and creative work” had on her career as an author.

In the morning, I would take my very first dance class. I was 16, ancient in dancer years. But I was scheduled to jump-start my dance life with pliés and jetés and mazurkas and “modern dance” seven hours a day, five days a week, for two months. A summer of dance at Chautauqua.
