In 2020, Taliesin is beginning its second decade of successful summer camp programs and is inviting forward-thinking collaborators from our global community to teach students ranging from ages 8 to 18. In our Taliesin summer camps, we guide youth in exploring and experimenting at the intersection of architecture, agriculture, culture, and nature.

Our Why
Taliesin is a rural laboratory for living, where architecture, agriculture, nature, and culture converge around the shared question: how might we live now? Building on the grand experiments and rebel spirit of Frank Lloyd Wright and the Taliesin Fellowship before us, we believe in continued exploration and experimentation at the intersections of cultural disciplines that together define both everyday life, and the greatest challenges of our time.

Learning and Teaching
We develop educational immersions that provide unique opportunities for hands-on exploration, integrated perspectives, as well as nurturing social cooperation, and environmental responsibility.

Experimenting and Innovating
We support advances in experimentation and innovation at the convergence of architecture, agriculture, culture and nature, reframing an organic approach for the 21st century.

Gathering and Questioning
We convene a diverse and global community of people committed to asking the shared questions about life, and how we might build a better way of life for future generations.

Our What
Taliesin Preservation produces innovative cultural and educational programming at Taliesin, Frank Lloyd Wright’s 800-acre estate in the rural Driftless hills of Wisconsin. For over one-hundred years Taliesin has served as a living laboratory, exploring and advancing organic principles in everyday life, where home, community, farm, the arts, education, and the environment are deeply connected and work as an integrated whole.

Taliesin Programs is supported in part by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts.
