Create Denver Week, which kicks off on May 12, will celebrate the local creative scene with a series of stylish events, including a pop-up art installation at the Spire, outdoor LED light and video projection showcases at the Denver Performing Arts Complex, food trucks, fashion, music and crafts. But its centerpiece remains the Create Denver Expo, an event that's not so much a celebration as it is an important resource for the city's creative intelligentsia.
This year's daylong expo, scheduled for Saturday, May 14, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Wellington E. Webb Municipal Office Building, 201 West Colfax Avenue, will brim with practical, hands-on information about everything from grant-writing to career planning for creatives, its point being that it's good to follow your dreams, but not without a solid road map.
Registration for the expo opens today (there is a registration fee of $5); advance registration is also available for all other DOCA-sponsored Create Denver Week events, which are free. Complete schedules are listed at the Create Denver website, along with a registration link. Whether you're looking to give or receive support, don't be left out in the cold.
