SOME OF THE POWERFUL EVENTS FROM ONE ACTION, 2012 ARE BEING BROUGHT BACK THIS FALL IN REMBERANCE OF THE 150TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE SAND CREEK MASSACRE. (CLICK HERE)
One Action-One Boulder/Niwot’s Arrow 2012 was an arts based community conversation project that used local history as a means to engage different segments of the Boulder community in a shared dialogue about our past, present and future as it relates to inclusiveness and inequality. The 2012 One Action project had a special emphasis in learning about the Sand Creek Massacre and the Arapaho chief, Niwot (Niwot or Left Hand). By the end of the year-long program, we hoped to inspire real and lasting change by encouraging each participant to choose one action they want to take that will help manifest their vision of a more inclusive, equitable and resilient community. Over 18,000 people and 50 area civic organizations participated in related activities in 2012: 2,800 people attended the 5 key arts performances, 1,200 participated in the library’s One Book-One Boulder common read program, and over 14,000 people attended the Chief Niwot exhibit at the Boulder History Museum. Over 100 people committed to taking a significant action to strengthen our community. There was even a One Action Boulder County Scholarship created at the Shepherd Valley Waldorf School.
