Join us on September 28th as the Colorado Chautauqua presents University for a Day. This one-of-a-kind event brings together scholars, activists, experts and community members for a day of thought-provoking and engaging conversations. This year’s topic, “The Politics of Dissent,” will engage some of the most influential activists in the world in a discussion of the moral and practical stances people take in response to a variety of contemporary social issues and world events.

2019's Lineup:

  • Dave Archambault, Sr., former tribal chairman of the Standing Rock Indian Reservation in North Dakota and outspoken activist at the Dakota Access Pipeline protests;

  • Jeffrey Marsh, one of the world’s foremost commentators on nonbinary identity and activism in America, presents a message of positivity and inclusion and in-depth knowledge of queer issues and history;

  • Reverend Osagyefo Uhuru Sekou, a modern-day civil rights activist whose frank discussions about black America’s fight for racial justice have gained him notoriety across the country; and

  • Nadya Tolokonnikova, a Russian conceptual artist, former political prisoner and co-founder of the artist collective Pussy Riot, whose August 2012 protest of Russian President Vladimir Putin attracted international media attention and support from the likes of Peter Gabriel, Sir Paul McCartney, Madonna, Bjork and Aung San Suu Kyi.

Ms. Tolokonnikova’s evening presentation will cap an engaging, enlightening and elevating day of community dialogue and reflection. Join us for this groundbreaking event on Saturday, September 28, 2019.
