brings inspiring and stimulating guest speakers to Hot Springs Village several times a year. It offers open, thought-provoking forums for intellectual and educational enrichment and the exchange of ideas to adult and student audiences in Arkansas.
The Ouachita Speaker Series was launched September 2012, in Hot Springs Village, Arkansas. It is presented in conjunction with the Ponce de Leon Center, the Village’s cultural center.
The creation of the Ouachita Speaker Series was inspired by other communities across the country that offer speaker series as open, thought-provoking forums for intellectual and educational enrichment, and the exchange of ideas. Distinguished speakers covering an exciting range of topics are invited to share their knowledge and observations, introduce new ideas, and inspire conversation.
Named in honor of Hot Springs Village’s mountainous geographic location, the Ouachita Speaker Series is held appropriately in the Ouachita Activities Building at 1101 DeSoto Boulevard. The public is invited to attend.
The project is envisioned as a way to bring inspiring and stimulating guest speakers to Hot Springs Village several times a year to complement the outstanding musical and theatrical performances offered throughout the year.
Tickets are available online at www.hsvticketsales.com or at the Ponce de Leon Center office, 1101 DeSoto Boulevard, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The Ouachita Speaker Series is a proud member of the Hot Springs Village Arts Council and the Hot Springs Village Area Chamber of Commerce.
