Arthyve Archive & Programming Survey

Arthyve is a new non-profit in the process of creating a brick and mortar public art library, community arts archive, and programming space in the Denver area.  Help them out by taking a quick survey.  Here are more details from Arthyve member, Jessie de la Cruz:

"We want to challenge erasure and misrepresentation of the historic record of our city's creatives by creating an equitable model for every artist to leave their mark. We'd appreciate it if you would take this 5-minute survey and if you would share it with your creative community so we can better provide programming and services that support your needs and to assess if people are interested in this thing called archives."
