This Week's Topic:
05.20.2019 | Children . . . Why?
The decision to parent back in the Eisenhower days was largely the default condition, reflecting the country's post-WWII swagger and industrial strength balance sheet. The world was made safe for . . . . breeding. Thus arose the demographic bulge -- the Boomer Generation -- which moved through time, in that visually compelling phrase, like a "pig in a python." Those excessively domestic fifties gave rise to what some labeled the "cult of the child," denounced by one literary critic at the time as "this most maudlin of primitivisms."
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.
