At Denver’s PlatteForum, artists partner up with at-risk youth to foster hope and creativity – and create art. Five artists are selected annually to host workshops for their youthful counterparts; each two-month-long program culminates in a presentation of the students’ work. The innovative program, along with other PlatteForum projects, has earned the gallery honors from the White House.
PlatteForum is an award-winning, unique community and youth-development center and artist-in-residence program in Denver that matches underserved and at-risk youth with master artists in intensive, structured, and long-term creative learning environments. We offer opportunities to artists, youth, and community through our primary programs: ArtLab, Learning Labs, and Creative Residency.
