The Temple of Tranquility will be built in Harlow Platts Community Park in Boulder, Colorado starting in October 2023. This art project is a community driven response to the collective traumas and grief experienced throughout the Boulder community following the tragic events and aftermath of the King Soopers shooting, the Covid-19 pandemic, the Marshall Fire, and associated challenges of the last several years. The Temple is available for use by everyone. It will also become a setting for participatory events that foster community healing, personal expression, and new beginnings. It will serve as a non-denominational space for contemplation and reverence.
Members of our advisory committee and volunteer corps have experienced how the power of civic artistic creation can help a community express and process trauma, loss, grief and forgiveness. Our team strongly feels the call to share this healing experience and opportunity for renewal with the entire Boulder community.
