Each April, a hundred fascinating luminaries from the widest range of backgrounds gather in Boulder for what The New York Times calls “a week-long extravaganza of discussion and debate” on more than 200 sessions over five days. Roger Ebert, who participated in the CWA for four decades, always referred to the CWA as “the Conference on Everything Conceivable.” The CWA is made up of vast network of engaged, committed volunteers. Many of the presenters would normally command large speaking or performing fees, but all who appear at the CWA waive honoraria and pay their own way to come to Boulder. University faculty, staff and students work alongside local community members to plan and host the week’s public events, as well as the participants’ transportation, housing and social functions.
