A special holiday message from
the Revs. Joan Brown Campbell and Robert Franklin.
Warmest wishes from all of us at Chautauqua Institution for a blessed holiday season.
Welcome to Chautauqua Institution
Chautauqua Institution is a community on the shores of Chautauqua Lake in southwestern New York state that comes alive each summer with a unique mix of fine and performing arts, lectures, interfaith worship and programs, and recreational activities. Over the course of nine weeks, more than 100,000 visitors will stay at Chautauqua and participate in programs, classes and community events for all ages—all within the beautiful setting of a historic lakeside village.
“Creating Community Through Arts and Culture”
The following is a transcript of prepared remarks Chautauqua Institution President Thomas Becker made at Hilton Head Island Institute’s three-day ideas festival ImagiNation 2013 conference on Oct. 24, 2013. The Hilton Head Island Institute is modeled in part on Chautauqua Institution.
Thank you to all of our participants for making our contest a huge success!
Haiku poems about, or inspired by, an aspect of Chautauqua were submitted throughout the month of October on our Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram pages with the hashtag #chqhaiku or via email to email@example.com.
We would like to thank Sherra Babcock, Vice President, Emily and Richard Smucker Chair for Education, for judging our Haiku entries. We would also like to thank Chautauqua's Department of Education for co-sponsoring our prizes.
