DDFL
4/26/16



Last week, my family adopted a new cat from the world's most awesome animal shelter! It took us a while but we named our new kitty Louie and he has quickly become a loving member of the Hudson household.

The Denver Dumb Friends League helps to connect all kinds of wonderful animals with individuals and families throughout the region.

The process for adopting an animal at the DDFL is simple.  You can go online and see all the animals up for adoption and read about their backgrounds. Knowledgeable, compassionate volunteers will bring out the animals you wish to meet to help you decide if this is the right pet for you. The DDFL gives you all types of information, tips and guidance for caring for your new friend.

When it was founded in 1910, it was named after a London, England, animal welfare group called "Our Dumb Friends League." In those days, the term "dumb" was widely used to refer to animals because they lacked the power of human speech. Today, the Dumb Friends League, headquartered in Denver, is the largest community-based animal welfare organization in the Rocky Mountain region—providing a strong, compassionate and steadfast voice for those who cannot speak for themselves.

Platte Forum

4/19/16



PlatteForum, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, supports contemporary artists and under-served youth in metro Denver through innovative, long-term arts programs that allow the youth to work side-by-side with artists in residence. This award-winning nonprofit organization provides a nurturing space where creativity and artistic excellence are highly valued and where artists and youth partner together to plan, produce, and exhibit a body of work to the public. The overall experience transforms the lives of the youth, the artists and the community.

About Learning Lab (a PlatteForum youth program):
Learning Lab is a program in which K-12 youth are teamed with contemporary professional resident artists in long-term, intensive sessions during the artist's residency at PlatteForum. Youth work side by side with resident artists to learn their creative process and then plan, create, and exhibit a body of work. Each Learning Lab spans approximately two months of sessions with the same artist and youth cohort. For each series, we partner with a different local school or youth-serving organization and provide Learning Lab programming free of charge to their youth.

About ArtLab (a PlatteForum youth program):
ArtLab is an innovative year-round, out-of-school program for underserved high school youth that integrates the creative process and arts-based learning with academic, personal, and professional skill development. As an intensive program, we are limited to 15 youth who go through a competitive application and interview process. Youth do not need to have an arts background. This program seeks youth who do not have access to learning through the arts and would benefit from structured immersion in the creative process.

ArtLab youth are involved in the creation and presentation of major works, mentored by professional artists, participate in workshops directed by visiting artists and participate in service-learning projects. All projects address social issues affecting their generation, which creates opportunities for youth to give voice to those issues and propels youth to become active members and catalysts for change in their communities. Through individual and group struggles, challenges, and obstacles, ArtLab interns learn to work together as a team, communicate, accept differences, and focus on completing a project/goal together. In the end, ArtLab youth create high-quality works of art and experience a sense of accomplishment, pride, and shared purpose.
