Media One's Chautauqua Preview
A Look At The Week At Chautauqua
Vanessa Weinert, Director of Marketing and Analytics, of Chautauqua Institution gets on the line with Lee John each week to preview some of the biggest programming events of the week for our audience to attend.
Chautauqua Preview - Week 1 2018
Language is a living and dynamic thing, passed along through writing. Words and the act of writing can erase or reclaim history, identity. We write to communicate our truths, and we read to understand, to gain new perspectives, new knowledge and new empathy. For these reasons, the literary arts find themselves at the forefront of cultural, political, and artistic conversations in the U.S. and around the world. As the line between writer and reader is blurred, we recognize that human beings are storytellers as well as story readers. In this weeklong festival, Chautauqua builds upon its traditions as a literary community, and we hold up the power of language and pledge to be responsible stewards of that power.
