The Great Debate is a new public program format inviting elevated and engaged conversations around questions that unpack our opinions around art and beyond. Following the centuries-old format of the Oxford Union, the proposition “Is the Local More Important Than the Global?” will be debated by four local leaders—two for and two against. Once the speakers have put forth their arguments, the discussion will open up to the audience for deliberation and a final vote.

Moderated by Alycin Bektesh, Interim News Director, Aspen Public Radio

Arguing For the Proposition:
1. Michael Miracle, Director of Community Engagement, Aspen Skiing Company
2. Rebecca Hart, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, Denver Art Museum

Arguing Against the Proposition:
1. Nancy Lovendahl, Artist
2. Steve Skadron, Mayor of Aspen
