Denver Urban Arts Fund

Urban Arts Fund logo

The purpose of the Denver Urban Arts Fund is to prevent graffiti vandalism by generating positive, well-tended and active community gathering spaces. Its goal is to produce opportunities for young people to participate in diversionary art and leadership programs.  

Projects funded by the UAF should focus on measurable outcomes related to the prevention of graffiti vandalism, and involve artists in building strong and vibrant communities.

Each year the UAF provides funding (awards range from $500-$7500) for programs and projects that:

  • Help reclaim a graffiti hot spot and create a positive community space; and/or
  • Help create and increase youth access and exposure to positive and monitored alternatives and support systems, including positive arts opportunities.
