The Biennial of the Americas is a four-day long festival of ideas, arts and culture that occurs every two years in Denver. The 2019 festival (#BOTA19) will take from September 25-28, 2019 at McNichols Building and Civic Center Park and centers on the timely theme of "Empathy in Action."
The Biennial of the Americas creates connections, builds community and inspires change across the Americas by bringing together ideas, art and culture from throughout the Western Hemisphere to Denver every two years for a grand, four-day festival. The festival will showcase the people and ideas across North and South America that are moving us beyond divisions and building solutions to the most important issues we face.
Here are some of the main events:
Thursday, Sept. 26
A dynamic keynote addresses sustainability with live music and art performances.
Saturday Art and Music Festival
Saturday, Sept. 28
Enjoy a day filled with Colombian music, art and culture featuring Jaguara, an artistic vision and masterpiece all the way from Colombia designed to bring attention to the deforestation of Colombia's largest Amazon rainforest, Chiribiquete.
Clínica workshops are open to the public and encourage debate and collaboration between panelists from across the Americas. Each clínica workshop explores the connection between the festival's theme (Empathy) and a particular industry or topic, including technology, marketing, fashion, transportation, art and more!
