“When refugees come to Denver, most of them come with pretty much just the clothes on their backs; we help with the whole resettlement process,” says Project Worthmore’s Carmen Melton. For this fundraiser, Melton — herself an artist — called on her creative community to help. The event will feature the photography of Ryan Roco, an international photojournalist who lived in Burma, along with some painted interpretations of the images, all for sale to benefit the nonprofit’s work. Flobots violist Mackenzie Gault will perform live as guests bid on the artwork and learn more about Project Worthmore.
Our Neighbors, Ourselves runs from 6 to 10 p.m. at the Aurora Cultural Arts District studios, 1400 Dallas Street in Aurora. Tickets are $25 to $70 and include drinks, light appetizers and desserts. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit projectworthmore.org.
