Big ideas meet big fun. The Biennial of the Americas returns.

Back when our governor was the mayor of Denver, John Hickenlooper envisioned an event that would celebrate the ideas, art, and culture of North, Central, and South America—putting Denver at the hub of a globally influential discussion. His plan appears to be working. Launched in 2010, the Biennial of the Americas keeps getting bigger, better and, happily, more inclusive of metro residents. So, Stepping Stone residents, think about how you might want to participate in this history-making event.

Opening week of this year’s Biennial is scheduled for July 14-19, and features talks by international innovators, experts, and artists; local art exhibitions; public parties; performances; and cultural events. Many art exhibitions, installations, and cultural programs will continue through August 30.

This year’s theme is Now!, a “dive into our present circumstances, seeking to understand the contexts, conditions, and challenges that exist across the western hemisphere today.” During three nights of symposium discussions, speakers and panel moderators will include (among others) former Chilean President Ricardo Lagos and former Colombian President César Gaviria, media mogul Tina Brown, Nature Conservancy president Mark Tercek, and Univision’s León Krauze. Discussions will range from strategic investing and evolving technology to the long-term community effects of legalized cannabis. Get your tickets here.

If a symposium isn’t your thing, you’ll find many other ways to enjoy this multicultural extravaganza:

  • A soccer festival with the Colorado Rapids playing Real Salt Lake. A pre-game concert features the Latin hip-hop band Debajo del Agua.
  • Nine clínicas (peer-to-peer workshops) during the mornings of July 15-17, where invited participants will engage in a series of facilitated, solution-driven conversations.

For more details on the many events planned, please visit the official Biennial website.
