The Rosendale Theatre will launch its Engaging Lectures with Everyday Experts Series (ELEE) on September 13th, where distinguished community members from different disciplines will give lectures based on their specific fields of work, passions, and creative process in attempts to inspire important conversations, unexpected collaboration, and inspired living. The evening will conclude with a panel discussion, whereby the evening’s speakers will be able to engage each other and questions from the audience regarding the evening’s theme. The ELEE series will bring relevant subjects and interesting speakers together, highlighting inter-disciplinary approaches, and inviting each and all of us to begin to see ourselves as “everyday experts” — whereby we pursue and spread our passions through the lives we live. Amidst the technological age in which we live, the value of human ingenuity is increasingly in our abilities to see across disciplines and synthesize meaningful conclusions and action. Through inter-disciplinary exploration, the ELEE series attempts to cultivate this new direction of human collaboration. The ELEE series will consistently bring inspired individuals together in real time on a monthly basis.
Each ELEE evening will be held on the second Tuesday of the month, 7:15-9:45pm
