Art for Everyone

The Denver Theatre District enlivens a 16-block area of downtown Denver through interactive, immersive and experimental arts and culture events and experiences. We provide creatives with a platform and financial support for sharing their work.

Many of our events and programs, such as Night Lights Denver and Understudy, become woven into the fabric of downtown or spark ideas and trends in other cities.

We formed the Denver Theatre District to bring light, art and activity to the streets of downtown Denver. The DTD launched as a public-private partnership backing the idea that managed outdoor media could support downtown activity and bring exciting unique urban experiences to the public. Over the years the DTD became a key participant in the downtown environment and a force in Denver’s artistic community.

we give people a reason to come downtown, be part of the city and have fun.


The DTD leaves a lasting impact on the Denver and artistic community through a revenue share model that is the first of its kind in the nation. Our media companies sell corporate advertising on the static and LED screens located throughout the district. We take a revenue share from those sales to fund art and cultural activities for the public. In 2017, we worked with Colorado Business Committee for the Arts to determine our actual impact, and it’s only grown from here:


SPENT on District art and cultural activation


in DONATED LED screen time and billboard space to nonprofit arts organizations


experience-based events LAUNCHED OR SUPPORTED


visitors DRAWN downtown for unique cultural experiences

Every Human by Moe Gram

Every Human

Moe Gram

November 8 – 23, 2019

Empathy and consideration are medicines prescribed to humans to cure the angst, trauma, mental illness or other side effects brought on by life experience. To successfully administer this medication to the masses we must first encourage humans to be reunited with their humanity. Thus, the most recent intervention: Every Human.

Every Human searches to find the common denominators between us humans. As we reflect on these common denominators as a group, we will hopefully ignite feelings of empathy and consideration not just for others, but also for our selves. In participation with the Biennial of the Americas and Understudy, we will produce a two part data driven project that is both actively motivating growth in our community as well personal healing.
