art for everyone

The Denver Theatre District enlivens a 16-block area of downtown Denver through interactive, immersive and experimental arts and culture events and experiences. We provide creatives with a platform and financial support for sharing their work.
Many of our events and programs, such as Night Lights Denver and Understudy, become woven into the fabric of downtown or spark ideas and trends in other cities.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Statement

We recognize historical inequities and barriers in the areas of access to funding, institutional support, and opportunities for creatives from marginalized communities. We are committed to abolishing these barriers by supplying our creative partners with unconditional resources, supporting authentic self-empowerment, and offering unrestricted developmental support for them so that they may actualize their true potential.

Land Acknowledgement

The land on which we reside is the traditional territory of the Ute, Cheyenne, and Arapaho Peoples. We also recognize the 48 contemporary tribal nations that are historically tied to the lands that make up the state of Colorado.
The Denver Theatre District launched as a public-private partnership backing the idea that managed outdoor media could support downtown activity and bring exciting unique urban experiences to the public.

impact

The DTD leaves a lasting impact on the Denver and artistic community through a revenue share model that is the first of its kind in the nation. Our media companies sell corporate advertising on the static and LED screens located throughout the district. We take a revenue share from those sales to fund art and cultural activities for the public.
