Please join us for a Hard Hat Tour and information on Thursday July 17th, at 7 pm and 8 pm at The Temple, 2400 Curtis St., Denver CO 80205 (entrance on 24th St.). The expected opening date is September 1st, 2014. Memberships to use the space start at $100/ month. Reserve your spot now!

“ Processus [prɔsesys] is the French word for process, evolution; a group of actions with a common goal; a series of events or a succession of methods. This multi-use space is inspired by our art philosophies and way of life. Driven by process and ideas, our works reflect timeless actions and methods as we often go back to the basics. For years, we have dreamed about a place to work, a place to meet new people and share important ideas. We envision a place where the artist community will share processes and ideas, a place to experiment and discover new things, a place that focuses on experience and chance encounters.”

The focus of the workspace will be on handmade objects, sculpture, wood fabrication, photography and works on paper. It will provide tools, assistance and advice for artists to make what they need to professionally display their works. We want to bring people together around ideas that are worth making to contribute to the evolution of art and life and make a difference. As part of the project, a coffee shop will offer a space for people to think and share ideas. The café will be open to the public while the workspaces will be open to members only. Regular workshops, lectures and events will start this fall.
