Come together in civic community, be inspired and encouraged to reflect and connect, and create new civic traditions that are joyful and communal. Through songs, readings and discussions, local artists, community members and Anythink staff will share inspiration on the theme of civic resolutions: How can we individually and collaboratively contribute to the communities where we live? This event is free and open to all. 

This gathering is hosted in conjunction with the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, Census 2020 and Adams County Elections. Attendees will receive vouchers for 50 percent off upcoming performances of the play twenty50 at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts.
