Mission Statement

ReCreative Denver is dedicated to cultivating creativity, community, and environmental stewardship through creative reuse and arts education.

Description

We collect donations of used materials that would otherwise end up in a landfill from local businesses and individuals to redistribute to our community. Proceeds from the resale of these goods helps fund our arts programming and supply free creative materials and workshops to the community.

We also rent studios to working artists, host monthly exhibitions, and hold events that celebrate art and creativity in all its many forms.

We believe that art fuels innovation and collaboration, and endeavor to create a physical space and programmatic approach that reflects this belief. Our hope is that ReCreative Denver will function as much more than a model for environmental stewardship. We see the space as a catalyst for social and intellectual enrichment. By bringing together members of our community not only to shop, but also to create, experience, and discuss art, we aim to foster cultural and personal connection among artists of all ages. Classes and workshops are conducted by artists, educators and environmental activists from both inside and outside our community.

We believe that art has the power to change human consciousness, and that our project will challenge others to think more broadly about interpersonal and global impact.
