In June & July, the Belin-Blank Center is hosting another Chautauqua series in Iowa City.

  • Chautauqua I (June 19 - 24, including class on Saturday)
  • Chautauqua II (June 26 - July 1, including class on Saturday)

We will feature six separate workshops on campus with additional online components. Participants may enroll in any one of the workshops. Those who enroll at the graduate level for all three workshops in either week—or both—receive an automatic tuition scholarship from the Belin-Blank Center for one of three classes (i.e., three workshops for the cost of two; six for the cost of four).

Limited housing will be available at Burge Hall, adjacent to Blank Honors Center, for those enrolling in all three workshops during either Chautauqua. Contact Rachelle Blackwell by email or at 800-336-6463 for registration information. Single rooms are available for $348 for each week (additional charge of $58 for those staying Sunday between the two weeks). Reservations, including payment, are due by Monday, May 15th, 2017 at 9:00am CDT.

Lodging options in downtown Iowa City include the Iowa House Hotel, Sheraton Hotel, and Hotel Vetro. Information on other area hotels, including options in neighboring Coralville, can be found at the Iowa City/Coralville/North Liberty Area Convention and Visitors Bureau.

Free music performances are available in downtown Iowa City every Friday evening! Other extracurricular opportunities will be available for Chautauqua participants.

Information about courses offered during the two sessions of Chautauqua can be found in courses for educators.
