Three Things to Do for Free This Week in Denver

Three Things to Do for Free This Week in Denver
PeaceJam
While cultural institutions are slowly unlocking their doors, access is still limited — and most live productions are completely confined to virtual presentations.

Still, Colorado's creatives keep producing worthy events, putting local, national and even international talent center stage...even if the stage is in your living room. Many of these events are available for free; here are five of the best this week:
The Dali Lama - Scientist
Through July 14
PeaceJam is a homegrown institution
that emerged from the Summer of Violence and now belongs to the world, even though it's still based in Arvada. In addition to the gatherings that PeaceJam hosts around the globe to bring young people together with winners of the Nobel Peace Prize, the group's founders, Dawn Engle and Ivan Suvanjieff, also produce films featuring the Nobels. And starting today, Monday, July 6, through July 14, in honor of the Dalai Lama's 85th birthday, you can watch award-winning The Dalai Lama — Scientist for free here.


KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Patricia Calhoun co-founded Westword in 1977; she’s been the editor ever since. She’s a regular on the weekly CPT12 roundtable Colorado Inside Out, played a real journalist in John Sayles’s Silver City, once interviewed President Bill Clinton while wearing flip-flops, and has been honored with numerous national awards for her columns and feature-writing.
