It’s the start of two new years—the Gregorian calendar year of 2023 and the Lunar new year of the Water Rabbit. This is also a significant year for the Center for Humanities & the Arts as we celebrate 25 years of promoting arts and humanities at the CHA. I came to Colorado in August 2019 and after 3.5 years I can confidently say that serving as director of the CHA and taking a leap of faith to move to mountain time has been the best professional decision of my academic career. I’ve been moved and inspired by the works of arts and humanities that I’ve had the privilege of viewing, watching, reading, and experiencing while serving as director. I work with an incredible team of people who are deeply committed to arts and humanities. And I am awestruck by how humanities and arts give meaning to people’s lives, at CU Boulder and beyond. Please peruse our website for fellowship and grant opportunities, for the events we hold in-person and on zoom, and for resources to support your vision for making arts and humanities vibrant, intellectually rich, and life-affirming.
