David Crosby, Graham Nash to deliver closing address at Conference of World Affairs


Organizers of the University of Colorado’s Conference on World Affairs (CWA) have announced that David Crosby and Graham Nash — of the legendary band Crosby, Nash, Stills and Young — will deliver the conference’s closing plenary address, called “Life Matters,” at 2:30 p.m. on Friday, April 8, at Macky Auditorium.

“Our students are thrilled about Crosby and Nash speaking at the Conference on World Affairs,” CWA media liaison Bryan New said in a press release.  “Boulder is identified with social awareness and activism, and these two have inspired so many in that realm, alongside their enduring influence on music and culture.”

The CWA runs from April 4-8, hosting 100 speakers and performers representing a wide range of backgrounds and interests from all over the country and globe. The event is five days of what The New York Times calls “a week-long extravaganza of discussion and debate” in approximately 200 non-academic, cross-disciplinary panels, plenary sessions and performances. All events are free and open to the public, and seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
