New Livestreamed Series “Taliesin Talks” Debuts for Summer

Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation | May 13, 2020

Taliesin Talks are weekly live-streamed discussions featured on Facebook. From preservation to space exploration and beyond, this hour-long conversational series offers digital audiences a new way to engage with the work of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation and the Wright legacy of architecture and design.  

As many sites have recently had to close their doors to the public due to COVID-19, the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation hopes that new virtual initiatives will connect us and invite more people to experience the Wright community. The Taliesin Talks series was conceived to be more interactive and cover a wider array of topics that demonstrate the vast scope of the Frank Lloyd Wright legacy. We hope you’ll join us weekly on Facebook for a Taliesin Talk to chat, learn, and share ideas. And, if you miss the live broadcast, though you won’t be able to interact, each Taliesin Talk will be saved for viewing later on our website.
