Earlier this month, the Denver Theatre District officially opened Understudy, a first-of-its-kind arts and culture experimental space inside the Colorado Convention Center. Artists and creative groups get to use the 700-square-foot space for free and the public gets to check out artist installations and take part in experiential activities.
The Denver Theatre District encourages taking public transportation or biking to Understudy, which is located next to the RTD “Convention center/Theatre District” Light Rail stop. Bike and B-cycle parking is available in front of the convention center off the 14th Street bike lane. Vehicle parking is available at meters, in local garages or on surface lots.
Here are a few upcoming FREE events:
