Denver Arts & Venues (DAV) believes in the strength and value of arts and culture in building healthy and inclusive communities. We are dedicated to supporting the health and vitality of Denver’s creative landscape - artists and culture bearers, non- and for-profit businesses, cultural districts, community-led development organizations and more.

DAV champions and partners on local-based research, policy development, educational programming and advocacy avenues. We administer federal and local grants and present our own funding opportunities and platforms.

We invest in Denver's arts, creative and cultural communities because we know they make our city great, they help our city thrive and make our residents proud.
