11th Annual High Plains Chautauqua

Aims Community College campus in Greeley, Colorado, will again be the setting for the 2010 High Plains Chautauqua (HPC), a unique blend of theatre, history and the humanities under a Chautauqua tent, in which audiences meet and engage in a conversation with personalities from the past. The August 3-7, 2010 HPC, theme is “American Voices: Breaking the Mold.”

What do Buckminster Fuller, Edgar Allen Poe, Dr. Seuss, Louise Nevelson, John Muir, Irene Castle, James Audubon and Langston Hughes have in common? They are all uncommon. There's not a common, conformist, or predictable thing about them. They have the courage of their convictions. They delight us, infuriate us, scare us, dare us to think big, inspire us to stand up for what we believe, challenge us to rethink our preconceptions, and make us laugh.  What can we learn from these extraordinary Americans? Can we add our voices to theirs in giving voice to a new American chorus of limitless possibility?

President Theodore Roosevelt once called Chautauqua the "most American thing in America." We agree. That's why we have convened some of the most interesting, provocative, and memorable Americans for our next High Plains Chautauqua. As Americans, they all broke the mold.  Together, they will challenge us to do the same. Don't miss the eleventh and most exciting Chautauqua ever. Join us under the big tent, Aug. 3-7, 2010.
