To encourage further social distancing measures and ensure Boulder remains economically and physically healthy, The Dairy Arts Center has created a virtual space for all to enjoy. Called “Free Range Dairy”, our city’s acclaimed art center will feature numerous world-class performances, all available online. Here’s what you need to know about The Dairy’s upcoming virtual events.

While Boulder is often noted for its world-class, mountain terrain, it also boasts a vibrant artistic community, including one of our country’s leading arts cinemas, The Boedecker Theater. Even though we can’t physically catch a film at this acclaimed cinema, we can still take in documentaries, short films, and variety shows, all from the comfort of home. Grab a bowl of popcorn and settle in for a fantastic, memorable film hosted by The Dairy.
When: 6/2, 2:00 pm
Ever wanted to make music but unsure of where to start? Join this Zoom lesson and learn how to create beautiful music inspired by your surroundings.

Guests need only a sheet of paper, drawing tools, and household objects to participate in this engaging workshop.
When: 6/7, 6:00 – 7:30 pm
Cozy up on the couch and tune in to Boulder’s Story Slam to hear awe-inspiring, heart-wrenching, laugh-inducing tales from creatives in our community. The evening’s theme is “Ring”, meaning story-tellers will offer five-minute monologues on something based around or inspired by this word. If you have a story related to this theme, The Dairy invites you to submit your story proposal for a chance to perform in an inviting and encouraging space during the Boulder Story Slam.
When: 6/14, 4:00 pm
During this difficult time, art can help us all feel a little more connected to each other and the greater global community. This event focuses on providing poems that bring joy and delight.

A discussion will follow the readings and all are invited to contribute.
When: 6/18, 6:30 – 8:00 pm
