Denverite + GoodCinema Collaboration – Art, DIY, & Gentrification
March 5, 2019
Join Denverite & GoodCinema for a movie and thoughtful conversation about the current state and future of DIY art venues in Denver as the city grows.
The evening will begin with a presentation of the film, Goodnight Brooklyn, The Story of Death By Audio, followed by an interactive panel discussion.
At the roots of any healthy cultural ecosystem, there’s DIY. Denver’s own scene has been around since long before the boom, operating unbothered in the city’s basements and otherwise unneeded warehouses. In December 2016, when a fire at Oakland’s Ghost Ship space killed 36 people, that changed. Cities across the country feared their own Ghost Ship fire, and in Denver, inspectors showed up just days later at the doors of Rhinoceropolis and Glob to shut down the venues and evict the artists living there.
Two years later, Rhino and Glob have to go-ahead to reopen, but the shape of Denver DIY is different. Let’s talk about it.
In 2014, after nearly a decade of shows in Williamsburg, underground venue Death By Audio was forced to close to make way for new Vice Media offices. Goodnight Brooklyn follows what happens next, as its founders and the DIY community built around it work through the final days.
