MEMBERSHIP

Notice of Annual Meeting – July 22

The Annual Meeting of the Colorado Chautauqua Association (CCA) will be held on Monday, July 22nd at 7:00 PM in the Grand Assembly of the Chautauqua Community House. All CCA members are invited to attend. Plus, Patty Limerick will be speaking on behalf of the Colorado Chautauqua.

The Relevance of Chautauqua in Our Time

The Chautauqua Movement was a social force in this country at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries.  Activities focused on adult education through cultural programming, lectures on political reform, and entertainment for the whole community. The movement waned decades ago, and many chautauquas disappeared. But the Colorado Chautauqua has persisted, with a dynamic merging of tradition and innovation, through eras of major social, political, and cultural change.  How might this institution draw on the ballast of its historical foundation to benefit Boulder, Colorado, and the nation today?  How might we think about the future course of this National Historic Landmark by reckoning with the many meanings–not all of them entirely harmonized–of “preservation?”
