Listening is an important component to centering diverse voices. Hearing from you helps us make Denver Art Museum's youth programs relevant, responsive, respectful, and engaging! This fall, we are launching a Youth and Family Programs Advisory Group with kids, families, grown-ups, and educators. In the past, we’ve held individual focus groups and listening sessions, but we’ve never worked with a reoccurring feedback group quite like this.

The advisory group will support the DAM’s commitment to deeply listen to and center diverse voices advisory by collaborating and consulting with members of the community as we develop programs and resources for youth and the community.

Due to COVID-19, we are currently unable to offer as many onsite interactive activities (the photo at top was taken prior to the pandemic). This group will help us plan for the future. Learn more about fun things families can do onsite now.


This is a paid opportunity to share your experience with us and help shape the DAM’s youth programs. This is a one-year commitment. Learn more about the role's responsibilities and compensation.

Quarterly meetings will take place on Sunday afternoons (virtually, until further notice). There may be additional opportunities to share your feedback and earn compensation.

Deadline: If you’re interested in applying to be part of this dynamic new group, please fill out the form before October 26. Decisions will be communicated on October 29, and the first session will be held on November 8, 2020, 1–4 pm.

Questions? Email and we’ll get back to you soon.

We’ve learned a lot from past focus groups with families. For example, the following quotes represent some of the feedback that help guide us as we plan fun activities families can do together when they visit. And we look forward to hearing more from people like you.

“I think that especially with kids they don’t want to just look at something, they want to be involved. Having some kind of interactive, or some kind of play where they could go…”

"I think it’s really important to have not just things that look cool, but things that you can do, like the interactive stuff you can do here, and I think it’s really more fun than just walking around and looking to have things to do."
