University for a Day, presented by Colorado Chautauqua Association, aims to make Chautauqua a top-level center for the pursuit and presentation of knowledge relating to a singular topic for the day. Over the course of one day, patrons are encouraged to attend as many of the day’s multiple lectures and presentations aimed to expand people’s knowledge and understanding of the day’s topic.
This September Colorado Chautauqua is excited to present a diverse curriculum of “Dissent and Activism.” Bringing together community and scholars alike, this one-of-a-kind event will showcase some of the top minds in the Front Range, presenting thought-provoking and engaging conversation. To close the event, Colorado Chautauqua is excited to host a special keynote address from Nadya Tolokonnikova, Co-Founder of the Artist Collective Pussy Riot.
