Event description

Description

Chautauqua in the Dunes brings together individuals, families, and groups to learn from each other and expand their worldview. Chautauquas were a popular educational model in the 1880s-1920s prior to the advent of mass media. Chautauquas were held around the country exposing local residents to world class cultural and artistic performances; lectures, debates, and round table discussions on economics, history, politics, environment, religion, medicine, and science; and community service opportunities.

We will create a contemporary Chautauqua experience in the Indiana Dunes State Park, August 16-19, 2018 thanks in part to the Arts in the Parks and Historic Sites Grant program managed by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources and the Indiana Arts Commission. Tickets are available for the entire Chautauqua experience including camping at Indiana Dunes State Park to day passes to single event tickets. See www.DunesChautauqua.org for complete schedule and more information.
