Cape Ann Forum Archive (2001-2019)
The Cape Ann Forum was an independent, non-partisan community organization, founded in 2001 to increase public understanding of national and international issues throiugh a series of free, public lectures. Speakers acted as catalysts to foster free-wheeling dialogue and debate. Audience members asked questions and offered comments, and members of the community took the floor to announce other Cape Ann events. It was dissolved in 2019. This page provides access to summaries of its more than 100 free, public events as well as descriptions of winners of the annual international awareness awards given to a Gloucester High School senior from 2006 to 2019. The scholarship will continue in the Forum’s name under the auspices of the Essex County Community Foundation.
