Denverite is all about helping you better engage with your city, and Denverite events are one of the best ways you can make connections with the issues you care about — and friends you haven’t made yet.
Here’s what’s in store for the near future, plus recaps of past events:
May 23 — Members-only event. Come hang out with Denverite journalists, talk about Denver’s big stories and learn how our host’s business supports local nonprofits! Check your 3:03 emails for details. Not a member? Now’s your chance!
June 7 — After studying nominations from Denverite readers and sources, we’re thrilled to announce the first-ever class of Who’s Next: Politics, presented by Sewald Hanfling Public Affairs — and you can meet them at an event where we’ll recognize them on June 7 at the ART Hotel. Drinks, mingling and, yes, probably a little talk of politics.
June 27 — We’re throwing a street party for Bike to Work Day. Meet us on your way home from work. More details soon. Be sure to sign up for our newsletter to get the invite!
We’re planning a hike to support Hunger Free Colorado’s Hike to End Hunger. Details soon.
July 27 — Members-only event. We’ll tell you about it when we can!
Denverite On Topic: Rent and Renters’ Issues was our second panel discussion on housing in the Mile High City. We were joined by Robin Kniech, Denver Councilwoman At-large, Andrea Chiriboga-Flor, lead housing organizer of 9to5 Colorado, Rocky Sundling, president of the Colorado Apartment Association and Rhianna Brown, who shared her story of recent eviction.
The Denverite Founding Member Mixer was an opportunity for our members to come get to know our staff. We were also all introduced to Understudy, the gallery under the Convention Center stairs with deep ties to the city’s art scene.
Denverite On Topic: Homelessness and Housing Insecurity was our first panel event, bringing together homelessness services providers and a woman who had experienced homelessness to discuss practical issues facing Denver today. Denverite readers and others in the community gathered at Curious Theatre to listen and learn.
Denverite’s Colfax Week Happy Hour was a wrap-up from a week of reporting on the city’s most notorious street. Characters from those stories showed up to mingle with readers at the Sie FilmCenter, and we listened to brief presentations from Yoal Ghebremeskel of Street Fraternity and Monica Martinez, executive director of The Fax Partnership.
Denverite’s One-year Anniversary Party — we celebrated our birth with a photo booth and props!
Denverite’s Election Night Party, our first-ever event (and an emotional one at that). We gathered ’round to watch the 2016 presidential election unfold in real time, mingle, celebrate, commiserate.
