Art from Ashes has the pleasure of working with young people across the Denver Metro area, providing creative youth empowerment programs on site at our new location in the Lincoln Park neighborhood.
Do you like poetry? Enjoy the spoken word? Might want to be rapper? Just like to write? Know a young person who does? Every Wednesday from 4:30 to 6:30 pm, AfA provides Phoenix Rising drop-in workshops for youth ages 12 to 24 at 1310 W. 10th Ave in Denver only half a block north of the Osage Light Rail Station.
Pizza, pens, and journals are all provided free of charge. Each workshop also features a guest poet from the community, such as Angela Nicole and Irina Bogomolova, as well as more nationally known poets like Kid Astronavt, formerly of Air Dubai, and rapper Lily Fangz.
Art from Ashes is a safe place, always has been, always will be. In an effort to be more accommodating to some of the youth who need a safe place before the drop-in starts, AfA will be open for youth on Wednesdays starting at 2 pm.
The new Wednesday drop-in schedule is as follows:
2:00 PM.: Doors open for youth
2:30 PM: Art activities
4:00 PM: Clean up
4:30 PM: Pizza
4:45 PM: Youth empowerment workshop with guest artist
6:30 PM: Wrap up
