IMAGINE 2020 Events and Programs

The second Monday of most months, Denver City Council celebrates and aids the implementation of IMAGINE 2020, Denver’s cultural plan, by featuring a poet, musician or performer at the beginning of the council meeting.

Built on seven vision elements, IMAGINE 2020 sets forward several strategic goals including integrating arts into daily life, making the arts more accessible and ensuring that Denver creatives thrive. We encourage all of Denver to do its part to implement IMAGINE 2020.
