A SHORT EXPLANATION OF SOME OF THE IDEAS BEHIND
Elisabeth Thoburn's CULTURE CIRCUIT

My vision of Culture Circuit includes a variety of cultural events hosted by different people...You perhaps?  The events could be talks and performances such as chamber music, talks by other presenters and tours to local monuments and museums - in a variety of media, genres and disciplines

Culture Circuit's first salons were held in the Winter of 2018 and included three 'journeys':

  • A trip through the history and sites of Cuba

  • A comparison between East Germany and North Korea

  • The St. Louis Arch with its surprising and amazing Finnish and Michigan connections

In the Winter of 2019, three more salons were held and included:

  • A history of the Frauenkirche Church

  • An exploration of the culture of the Aztecs

  • A tour through the Borobudur Stupa and an introduction to Buddhism

Six local hosts opened their homes for these events.   In small settings, typically no more than 25-35 people, an hour and a half lecture was preceded and followed by a social hour with light refreshments, drinks and socializing.

I hope you will join me as I continue with my endeavor to share interesting and relevant cultural events with my friends, students, neighbors…anyone who is interested.

We recently posted a new series of lectures that will begin in early March, 2020. You can explore a description of these new lectures by clicking CURRENT EVENTS AND RSVP below. If you are interested in attending any, there are RSVP forms provided.
