As the Newman Center navigates one of the most challenging moments in history, our priorities center around ensuring a future for our students, artists, and venues. We want to continue serving our communities with diverse programming in upcoming seasons, bringing esteemed artists, profound speakers, and community engagement initiatives to DU and Denver. Like many of our peers, we have started a donation campaign, inviting our incredible audiences to make a gift to our Special Opportunities Fund. This funding allows us to continuously explore the best and brightest artistic initiatives, programs, and collaborations. Join us in showing up for the arts on #1Day4DU.
