Calling all Artists, Activists, and Archivists
This Friday, August 18th, Denver will be introduced to Arthyve through an assembly at the McNichols Civic Center Building titled “Archives for Artists.” Arthyve is a newly-formed non-profit community arts archive created by and for the community to celebrate, preserve and document Denver and Colorado’s thriving and prolific arts and culture. Arthyve is currently securing funding and a permanent space, and will soon exist as a brick and mortar archive, programming space and arts library. With this inaugural program, Arthyve aims to give the arts community a first-step introduction into the radical act of archiving and to bring to center under-represented communities in our rapidly changing city.
ABOUT Arthyve: Arthyve is a collective of artists, activists, and archivists committed to transcending, and challenging mainstream art representation, while celebrating, preserving and documenting the creative communities and practices throughout our city and state. We manifest our mission through public programming, workshops, exhibitions, collections development and interdisciplinary talks, all of which inspire critical inquiry, scholarship and creative engagement.
