Denver Arts & Venues Responds to COVID-19
Denver Arts & Venues recognizes that our cultural sector is being deeply impacted by the uncertainty of COVID-19. Like all of us, we are concerned for the health and well-being of our families and friends, those we work with, those we fund, and those we serve. Our attention, as always, is on our artistic and creative community and the residents we engage through cultural efforts, as we continue to work hard to understand the human and financial impacts this will have on our agency and Denver’s iconic venues and cultural facilities.
We are taking steps to respond to the challenges before us. We are continuing to work on ways to support artists, cultural workers and organizations during this difficult time.
We will stay connected as we come together to lead with intention, empathy and kindness. Please check here and denvergov.org regularly for support and resources.
