Sunday 10a.m. - 6 p.m.Welcome to the NEW Denver Black Arts Festival! This years theme "Arts Purpose".
As a people, African-Americans have traditionally had an awareness of limitation in resources. Our history bears out a culture that has learned to meet the challenges of appreciating the gifts of the earth. We know not to waste, to turn off lights, re-use, recycle and renew as a means of survival. We have respected Mother Earth. This year we honor her by presenting a pavilion designed to educate and expand this awareness. The area will include information and educational presentations which will help promote concern and knowledge of how individuals can make small adjustments, daily, which translate into global impact on the environment.
This year we are proud to present the Health is Wealth Pavilion. Perhaps more than any other segment of the population, African-Americans have more health challenges and are the victims of severe debilitating diseases. Many of the community’s health problems are due to poor diet, limited resources and lack of education concerning life-style choices. Health service providers and the Medical community will play a vital role in their presentations. Their presence helps to provide information, education and free testing services for attendees.
