Taos Cultural Institute

SMU-in-Taos Cultural Institute

Save the date for an unforgettable weekend in the Land of Enchantment: July 16-19, 2020

SMU-in-Taos Cultural Institute courses provide an opportunity to recharge your mind and spirit. Deep in the heart of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains – surrounded by the Carson National Forest – we invite you to nourish your intellect and connect with others. Enjoy two days of in-depth, hands-on exploration that broadens your outlook, and build memories and friendships that can last a lifetime. Field trips add a vivid dimension to augment your understanding and bring additional perspective to course content. Also woven into the itinerary are lively receptions, SMU’s Ima Leete Hutchison Concert featuring Meadows School students and free time to enjoy a bit of respite and discover Taos at your own pace. We look forward to seeing you here!

Plan to arrive Wednesday evening or Thursday morning to enjoy these Taos highlights on your own.
