This Week's Topic:
04.29.2019 | No More Consensus
To give Steve a break and involve our younger members, City Club member Daniel Haarburger will lead Monday's discussion. The theme is "No More Consensus - an exploration into what we don't agree upon... yet.”
There's a fantastic question I was asked several years ago that has stuck with me. The question was, "what important truth do you believe that few people agree with you on".
At the surface, to find an answer seems simple. One quickly discover, however, that most answers are not novel but in fact common knowledge. "Education is important", "we need to learn to work together", "progressive taxation is good", etc. Though these are all answers that are widely agreed upon, they don't satisfy the "very few people agree with you" constraint.
Groups, Events, and More!
Our diverse indoor and outdoor spaces can accommodate groups as few as two and as many as 600+. We host local organizations and global speakers, workshops on thought provoking subjects, talks from leading scientists, mystics, entrepreneurs and activists. We invite successful businessmen and aspiring politicians to share their ideas with us, and have been holding art exhibits for over thirty years. We have been a major sponsor of the Jaipur Literature Festival since inception, love poetry readings, and encourage our members to pick up a guitar to accommodate another member’s urge to sing. Our members get to play the piano when inspired, and we hire professional musicians to perform for and entertain our community members. We hold annual festivals for Boulder Symphony Orchestra, the Bach Festival, Bluegrass and Jazz performances, electronic music to dance to, and much more.
We like to learn and have a good time. If you have an idea for an event, contact us with a brief description of under 100 words as to why your idea is a good fit, otherwise, just view our calendar below to see what programs are coming up soon.
