Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

When Westword’s first 100 Colorado Creatives series came to an end last February, it was a little like losing a very artsy best friend. And there were still so many unsung creative types doing great things around this state that we decided to start on a second round of Q&As. Here are some of our favorites from the current 100 Colorado Creatives profiles:

Aaron Johnson

Rian Kerrane

Jeffrey Dante Campbell

Valerie Santerli

Thomas Scharfenberg

Jill Hadley Hooper

Tara Rynders

Andrea Moore

Darrin Alfred

Tariana Navas Nieves

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
