All Day

The Conference on World Affairs was founded in 1948 as a forum on international affairs, and expanded rapidly in its early years to encompass the arts, media, science, diplomacy, technology, environment, spirituality, politics, business, medicine, human rights, and so on. Roger Ebert, who has participated in the CWA for thirty-eight consecutive years, refers to the CWA as “the Conference on Everything Conceivable.”

Each April 110 participants representing a wide range of backgrounds gather in Boulder for what The New York Times calls “a week-long extravaganza of discussion and debate” on over 200 panels, plenaries and performances.

All events are free and open to the public.
