Welcome to PlatteForum!

PlatteForum supports contemporary artists and at-risk, under served youth in metro Denver through innovative, long-term arts programs that allow the youth to work side-by-side with artists in residence.  This award-winning nonprofit organization provides a nurturing space where creativity and artistic excellence are highly valued and where artists and youth partner together to plan, produce, and exhibit a body of work to the public.  The overall experience transforms the lives of the youth, the artists and the community.

Our programs are possible through the generosity of our sponsors:
