Leveraging our unique business model, DAV directs funding to programming in partnership with cultural organizations, artists and community members. We aim to create meaningful experiences, celebrate the diversity of artistic disciplines and cultures, provide a stage or platform or vacant wall for the incredible talent we have in Denver and deepen relationships with our residents and partners.
We believe in creating with the community and not for the community.
OUR SIGNATURE EVENTS
We create a full roster of programming at our venues and throughout the city that are open to the public and often free or with a low-cost ticket. We host films, yoga and wellness, immersive theatre, storytelling, singing, dancing, art, fashion and so much more. We highlight local talent and collaborate with local businesses and organizations to create one-of-a-kind Denver experiences.
DENVER ARTS & VENUES CULTURAL RUNWAY SERIES
Denver Arts & Venues invites fashion designers to present their best looks from their current collections for inclusion in a competition-style runway show on Oct. 14 at McNichols Civic Center Building in Denver. Designers are asked to submit photos of three designs, from which a panel of judges will select up to 10 designers to showcase on the runway. Each designer chosen will receive $500 that can be used to enhance the designs they choose to highlight at the Denver Arts & Venues Cultural Runway Series: Community.
More than 400 pieces of art can be found in all corners of the city with 50+ projects in progress. Over $40 million invested in the collection, along with historic and donated works of art, providing opportunity for Denver residents to experience art in public places.
