Open MINDS Institute

Spring 2021 – Offerings

“Staying in touch – open to discussion – community conversations for learners exploring a diversity of views”

In response to the current COVID19 situation, we cannot offer our usual curriculum of enriching, live, interactive seminars with Master Teachers and engaged community members and avid lifelong learners. We invite you to register for livestreamed, educational virtual seminars:

Recognizing that ‘education is for everyone’ – this fall you can learn, be inspired, and find new directions as we invite you to join the Open MINDS Institute learning community. You will enjoy your discussion with Master Teachers who share their knowledge in a range of topics from art history, politics, media criticism, constitutional law, publishing, and opera.

Open MINDS Institute courses are free.
