TEMPLE TATTLE – Experience | Strength | Hope

Post 11 of 157

Introducing Temple Tattle, PlatteForum’s third annual offering, in which we pair-up creatives from The Temple with the rabble-rousing change agents of our great city to show how we can make socially just communities through art. Our Tattle Tales present varying approaches in art and culture, on how to create an equitable society by challenging injustice and valuing diversity.

Experience | Strength | Hope

Featuring Tobias Krause, Senior Events Manager of Two Parts, an experiential events, marketing, and promotions business housed in our own building, The Temple, along with news host Vic Vela of Colorado Public Radio.

Join us for a one-night discussion with our speakers, who will both share their personal experiences of addiction, and how they have come to support others who are experiencing the same. Tobias will address the challenges that face performers and creatives, while Vic will talk about his life’s journey, and how he is using it to produce an upcoming podcast which highlights recovery stories.  Free and open to the public.

Wednesday, June 19th at 6:30 p.m.
PlatteForum, 2400 Curtis St, Denver, CO 80205


All talks are free and open to the public.

He helped produce the Westword Music Showcase for two years, after which he jumped ship to take on the Underground Music Showcase for the past three years. In January of last year, Krause’s employer, Two Parts, purchased the Underground Music Showcase from The Denver Post Community Foundation. Two Parts tapped Krause to be the next Event Director for the festival as it enters its 19th year in Denver for 2019. Outside of Two Parts and the UMS, Krause does music development with young artists and volunteers with a slew of nonprofits around the city. He also has a dog named Guthrie.
