Biennial Information

Overview

The Biennial of the Americas is an international festival of ideas, art, and culture hosted in Denver, Colorado, that provides a nonpartisan platform for leaders in business, government, civil society, and the arts to examine the significant issues impacting life in the Americas.

Designed to inspire thought-provoking solutions, the Biennial of the Americas brings together world leaders from politics, business, education, and the arts through public forums, art and architecture exhibitions, public festivals, and more. The Biennial celebrates the artistic, intellectual, and political spheres of the Americas.

In addition to the idea forums, an arts initiative titled Draft Urbanism will provide an exhibition of public art and architectural installations, and will work with local and international institutions to present partner programs that highlight the innovation and creativity of the Rocky Mountain region.

The Biennial believes that by bringing people with distinct backgrounds together, we can inspire a challenging, thought-provoking and solutions-oriented discussion with the intention of making the world a better place.
