Behind the Scenes at the DAM

Calling all Creatives: Create Denver Week is Here

Each and every year, we are blown away by the support and outpouring of creativity that the City of Denver's most creative branch of government, Arts and Venues Denver, supports and encourages. This year, AVD is throwing down a multi-day, multi-media party/creative conference/showcase called Create Denver Week. The event launched Thursday night at Battery 621! All the details about the week are on the denver.org website.

If you are a creative person, an artist, designer, photographer, game designer, architect, crafter, musician, beatnik, or ____ (fill in the blank) you should totally come check this out with us. There are tons of great resources to get your creative business idea going, support your existing endeavors, and hook you up with organizations and other people looking to collaborate.

If you are an art lover, design aficionado, fun-loving Denverite, you've got to come out too. This is one of the best ways to see what this creative community is up to and find tons of resources, amazing performances, and to have a great time. We'll be there supporting our friends and Untitled partners and basking in the glow of one of the nation's most vibrant creative communities. On the city's Create Denver Week page, find out what's on tap through May 13—including a special Create Denver beer by the Wynkoop!

All non-Expo events are free and open to the public.
