It's been a rocky few weeks for DIY communities. Oakland's Ghost Ship fire killed 36 people, at a dance party in a warehouse that had not been inspected in thirty years. That triggered cities across the country to ramp up their inspections of DIY spaces. Here in Colorado, Rhinoceropolis, Glob and Flux Capacitor have all been shut down — the latter permanently. Last week, the DIY community surfaced as a political coalition, Amplify Arts Denver, to improve conditions for the local underground scene, and Seventh Circle Music Collective survived an inspection.
Catch up on what's been going on since the Ghost Ship fire below.
