A fun, off-script program created for and by Denver's unique creative community.  Join us for these regular happenings that activate the space and provide informal opportunities to engage with RedLine.  These experiences will take place on the first and third Mondays of the month, in the evening starting at 6:00pm and ending no later than 8:30pm. 


Upcoming programs


Monday May 7

Small Statements in collaboration with the Denver Museum of Miniatures, Dolls and Toys

RedLine Contemporary Art Center and the Denver Museum of Miniatures, Dolls and Toys are teaming up to present a new public art project in Five Points called Small Statements.

Participants will be invited to create a miniature diorama in a small tin to be their small statement. This will be something that tells a story about a community in which they belong, a memory they have – anything they think other people should know. By wryly subverting traditional expectations of miniatures that create perfect model towns and recreate glorious historical moments, we hope that participants can show their anxieties, their frustrations and their aspirations for a rapidly changing Denver. These tiny artworks will then be tucked away in public spaces for visitors and residents of Five Points to find.

Be Vulnerable: A Night of Artistic Testimonials with Lighthouse Writers Workshop

What are your creative hang-ups? We all have them, whether it's the fear of failure or being a sell-out, to the overarching feeling of "not being artist enough." Whatever your hang up might be we'd love for you to share it, and then listen with open minds to the testimonials of fellow artists and writers.

Register here! 

What is Make/Shift Monday? 

Make/Shift Monday is a program that encourages participants to engage with RedLine in a unique and inspiring way. Make/Shift, as the name implies, is very open-ended and each bi-weekly happening is crafted with the creative spirit in mind. The nature of programming is always thoughtful, sometimes a little wacky, and somewhat improvisatory.

Make/Shift is an opportunity for local creatives and extended members of the RedLine community to share practical skills, intellectual interests, or secret superpowers with a receptive group of peers and arts enthusiasts.

There is an endless variety of “types” of  things that could go on during a Make/Shift Monday. Past programs have included participatory concerts that involve music, poetry, improvisation, and dance where the distinctions between composer, performer, and audience member are dissolved; collaborative art activities and creative testimonials; one-of-a-kind art workshops; and many more!
