Event Image The Promise and Poignancy of Diversity in the 21st Century
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Presented by Peggy McIntosh and Victor Lewis
 
The promise of diversity in the 21st century is that we can now see, more clearly than before, that we are plural in our psyches, in our experiences and in our interconnections. The poignancy is that we have made a hash of this promising understanding, and have let fear, restlessness, defensiveness, greed, and monocultural seeing choke up our abilities to ourselves and others. This presentation is about coming to see power systems, rather than individual efforts, as important determinants of one's life experience. This event is open to the public.
 
Co-hosted by Naropa University, UCB Office Diversity, Equity and Community Engagement (ODECE) and the Boulder Public Library.

Event Image Separated at Birth: Insights from Kindred Communities
7:00 PM

Sesquicentennial Panel Discussion Separated at Birth: Insights from Kindred Communities 
 
Boulder can boast of being placed on many "Best of..." lists: most educated cities, best cities for bicycling, best healthy places to retire, greenest cities, top art destination, and so forth. Comparisons to other innovative cities along these lines are natural and create a set of kindred cities, from whom we may have been "separated at birth," but with whom we share certain attributes.

What lessons can we learn from a bit of advice from some of these places? How have they dealt with maintaining a strong sense of community in the face of intense pressure for change? Have they experienced a loss of diversity, in all its meanings? Has their strong community identity been a good thing or a burden? Have choices for divergent lifestyles increased or diminished? Are their communities becoming more sustainable? And what does that mean, and what changes might be required?

Moderated by Patty Limerick, panelists from "kindred communities" will share their stories and help us all reflect and where Boulder might be headed in the coming years.

Their work is motivated no just by the utility and importance of fluid flows, but also by their inherent beauty.  The pleasures of flow visualization are not restricted to laboratories; anybody who has paid attention to the patterns while stirring milk into coffee or stared at the curl of a rising tendril of smoke has participated in flow visualization.  We hope you will find this exhibit an inspiration to look at fluids more often.

--A free screening for Arts & Culture Week

Laila's Birthday will have one showing on September 27th at 7pm in ATLAS 102.

Part Tati, part Chaplin, part absurdist satire in the manner of Palestinian director Elia Suleiman (Chronicle of a Disappearance), Laila's Birthday is beautifully shot and overlaid with a spare, lyrical score that lends rueful emphasis to Masharawi's exasperated fidelity to a chronically malfunctioning city. (Ella Taylor, Village Voice)
