Taliesin Forum

New insights every year.

Taliesin Forum follows a long tradition of innovative public discussions and presentations at Taliesin that bring cultural and scientific leaders together with a diverse audience to both discuss ideas fundamental to our society and to understand that such thoughts only have viability within a social life.

Ranging from informal salons in Wright’s living room to the formal “Taliesin Evenings,” these events are legendary. Today, Taliesin continues this tradition by bringing world renowned designers and visionaries to the intimate confines of Taliesin and Taliesin West to give these talks, drawing additional inspiration from the built masterpieces created by Wright and his apprentices.

Location Matters
It is our belief that the atmosphere and traditions Taliesin offers will engender a deeper and more fruitful form of discussion than the one offered through large-scale public lectures.

Taliesin lectures are free, public talks that not only allow for a once in a lifetime lecture experience but also allow the audience to fully engage with the presenter.
