Engaging Lectures with Everyday Experts – ELEE

The Spirit of Life-Long Curiosity; the Art of Local Inquiry

Help fund the Engaging Lectures w/ Everyday Experts (ELEE) Series at the Rosendale Theatre by pre-buying tickets, packages, sponsorship, or simply donating to this locally-sourced education program. Read more about our story here, watch the video, or visit our website at EngagingLectures.com.

ENGAGING LECTURES with EVERYDAY EXPERTS (ELEE) is a locally-sourced lecture series at the Rosendale Theatre which highlights local experts and passionate amateurs alike whom present upon a broad range of themes, disciplines, and ideas. Each evening showcases three Everyday Experts whom offer compelling and thought-provoking 15-minute lectures. The lectures are then followed by a panel discussion where all three experts are able to engage each other, as well as respond to questions from the audience. Each evening’s content will vary by month, yet the ELEE series is geared towards inspiration, creativity, conscious-living, sustainability, nature-awareness, and community-building themes. 

The ELEE Series’ mission is fourfold: 

1) Showcase the amazing and diverse people of the Mid-Hudson Valley, and provide a space for them to share their gifts, work, and passions with their local community. 

2) Start important conversations regarding conscious-living, creativity, inter-disciplinary exploration, inspiration, and civic-engagement.  

3) Present meaningful and grassroots education to the local community that is professional, heart-centered, and affordable.  In this place community members of all ages and backgrounds may continue to learn and find inspiration in a diversity of realms, as well as network with other like-minded people. 

4) Elevate us all to begin to see ourselves and others as “Everyday Experts” — honoring our talents and passions, while also providing a potent call to engage and take initiative in our own lives.  

In this light, we may begin to all see our own lives as our greatest work, while also feeling supported and networked as we share and cross-pollinate across disciplines.  This format uses creativity and inspiration as the foundation of community-building and ‘out-of-the-box’ thinking.  The ELEE Series also aims to directly foster unexpected and unique collaboration. Inter-disciplinary by design, ELEE showcases experts from diverse backgrounds, as well as cross-pollinates content from seemingly different fields. Within the technological age, the value of human ingenuity is increasingly within the ability to see across disciplines, and then synthesize meaningful conclusions and action. The ELEE series is founded on this synthesis, while simultaneously encouraging audience members to expand, connect, explore, and diversify their own pursuits. 

ELEE is currently being piloted at the Rosendale Theatre, in Rosendale, NY. ELEE evenings will be the SECOND TUESDAYs of each month, beginning on September 13th.  Visit EngagingLectures.com frequently for a full schedule, and updates on each evening’s presenting experts and themes.
