Knowing Your Place Saturdays, 10:00 am – 12:00 pm. June 11, June 18, June 25. Playwrights and actors must have a strong sense of place, whether they are creating a play, acting in a play, or both. This three-session workshop will engage not only playwrights and actors but designers, directors, and writers in other genres. In addition to discussion of given circumstances and context as they relate to place there also will be plenty of creative opportunities which will enhance one’s understanding of the workshop’s key concepts. Instructor: Paul Edwards. Cost: $90.
Gunnison Valley is also host to several beloved annual events. A classic winter event is The Alley Loop, a Nordic ski race that doubles as a costume contest. In fall, Mt. Crested Butte hosts the famous Chili and Beer Festival. Every summer in Gunnison, a crowd gathers to watch America’s fourth-oldest rodeo, Cattlemen’s Days. There are also festivals in Crested Butte that celebrate local art, music, wildflowers, and more. Attending an annual event is a good way to connect with the culture of the Gunnison Valley. You might even create a new tradition for you and your family and friends!
