The Women’s History Symposium is a gathering of educators, museum professionals, researchers, and individuals from all walks of life who explore how women’s history is found in unexpected places and through non-traditional techniques. The day features multiple panel discussions, presentations, lunch, and a keynote by award winning artist Chloé Duplessis. This year's theme, "Framed in Time" explores the history of women’s agency in Colorado. 

The Call for Proposals for the 2024 Women’s History Symposium presentations will be released on June 1, 2024 and are due on September 23, 2024, at 12:00 PM MDT.

About the Keynote Speaker

Chloé Duplessis creates images that elevate the unknown, illuminate the forgotten, and mindfully address the present. In doing so, Duplessis seeks to center the importance of shared history, and erode the social constructs that oppress people of color and those navigating disability.  She is a legally blind artist, curator and historian committed to creating work that centers equity, accessibility and healing. With over twenty years of experience in intercultural engagement, arts administration and advocacy, she has traveled to nine countries and 24 states in support of her work. She earned a Bachelor's degree in Cultural Studies from The University of  New Orleans, and studied art and history at Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic. Duplessis is the creator of Denver's first accessible "I VOTED" sticker and co - creator of the noted Holding Hope mural located in RiNo Art District. She is also the 2023 recipient of Denver Mayor's Award for Excellence in Arts and Culture in Equity, Diversity and Inclusion. Chloé has been featured in The Denver Post, 303 Magazine, The Independent and on Colorado Public Radio,  CBS 4 News Denver, and NBC 9News Denver. She is the founder of Duplessis Art, an arts studio and consultancy based in Colorado.
