RoundTable Cultural Seminars is a 501c3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to enrich the knowledge of individuals through the study of arts and literature. This will be accomplished by providing adult education in the fields of theatre, music, politics, and the like to members of the organization. Individuals who are professors and experts in their respective discipline/s will instruct the courses.


Following fifteen years of success after having founded The Shakespeare Society, Nancy Becker and Adriana Mnuchin turned their attention to adult continuing education. It appeared to them that opportunities for learning and expanding one’s intellectual creativity were lifelong goals for many individuals — and they wanted to provide a means to do that. 

Founded in 2008, RoundTable Cultural Seminars started with a small group of women who enjoyed reading and discussing poetry, meeting in one another’s homes. New topics of interest were introduced monthly and eventually professors were engaged to moderate. Today, RoundTable Cultural Seminars has transformed into a cultural institution offering many diverse topics to its community moderated by highly regarded professors from the finest universities, as well as artists and experts from the top of their fields.
