The Biennial Has Arrived!
First there are the nightly public symposia. I'm attending Tuesday and Wednesday nights - July 16, Unleashing Human Potential: Reinventing Communities, Business, and Education; July 17, Reinventing Communities and How We Live. But not sure I'm up for the other 2 nights of discussions - July 18, Reinventing Business As Usual; July 19, Reinventing Education for the Global Market, because by Thursday I'm ready to party!
The festivals are what really pull me in. Planning on meeting friends in Civic Center Park on Friday for the "Denver Festival," but gonna try to make them all! And while you're down here checking out all the events stop by the Library and check out some of the, world and local music CDs, you'll be surprised by some of the gems waiting to be checked out!
Oh, and did I even mention the ART coming to town with the Biennial?! Well, there is so much that I can't even begin to list the events, so you'll have to check that out for yourself at denver.org/biennial.
Now you might ask, why a Public event mentioned in a Library Blog? COMMUNITY, plain and simple. This event is about Community, what we do, how we do it and where do we go from here. It's about our Global Community, which includes us, our Local Community. It's about People and Ideas and what possibilities can come from this combination. Don't know about you, but I'm ready for this conversation and for some suggestions if not actual solutions.
If you attend any of the Biennial events, let me know what's on your mind.
