IMAGINE 2020 Events and Programs

Upcoming IMAGINE 2020 Events

Arts & Venues Programs

Artspace Feasibility Study
Artspace is working with Denver Arts & Venues, the Denver Foundation and the North Denver Cornerstone Collaborative (NDCC) with goals to identify the space needs of the creative sector and the community in and around the River North Art District (RiNo) and North Denver area. The study, inspired by IMAGINE 2020 vision element #5, helps support Denver arts by informing a potential mixed-use project that includes long-term affordable living and working space for artists and creative businesses.

P.S. You Are Here
Inspired by IMAGINE 2020 vision element #1, Mayor Michael B. Hancock and Denver Arts & Venues launched P.S. You Are Here, a citywide creative placemaking and neighborhood revitalization program that will cultivate collaborative, community-driven, outdoor projects in Denver’s public spaces. Read more.

City Council Performances

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. 

Imagine 2020 Speaker Series

In 2014, Arts & Venues hosted five IMAGINE 2020 Speaker Series and Interactive Workshops inspired by the seven vision elements in the cultural plan. The goal of the series is to continue the conversations catalyzed during the cultural planning process, provide tools for implementation, and offer a forum for advancing the goals detailed in the plan.
