Storytelling Lab: Latino/Chicano Historic Context

The City and County of Denver has launched a first-of-its kind project to uncover and share the rich history and historic places of Denver’s Chicano and Latino communities. The goal is to create a broad overview on the citywide settlement and development patterns of Latino and Chicano communities in Denver up to the 1990s. The project will identify significant locations and buildings connected to our Chicano and Latino communities in order to preserve and protect those spaces. The project will also help Denver build a more inclusive list of designated landmarks and historic districts and inform the citywide building survey Discover Denver.

We need your stories, memories and photos to identify significant locations that should be recognized and remembered and ensure the project reflects the community.
 
Please join I Am Denver in partnership with Community Planning and Development’s Landmark Preservation team for a FREE workshop with story-inspiring activities and hands-on training in the Storyvine guided video app we’ll be using to record your story about that cherished location or building. The app may be downloaded in advance. Please bring your mobile device to the workshop.

Selected stories may be featured at IAmDenver.org, on social media or in a mini documentary to be released later this year.

Space is limited to 100 participants!
