Confluence: Bringing the Stories of Denver to Life
Every city has untold stories; stories of movers and shakers, doers and creators, and the Downtown Denver Partnership believes those stories are the fabric that makes our city so unique. Confluence, which launched Nov. 14, features weekly articles that tell Denver's story of economic and cultural vitality. Denver's "creative class" is featured throughout Confluence's content with the intent of highlighting the people, ideas, developments and creativity that are moving the city forward.
Confluence-Denver.com is meant to help cement awareness of Denver’s urban neighborhoods and attractions among creative workers by generating a steady stream of lifestyle and arts stories about Downtown. It also profiles small entrepreneurial companies in the city along with the activities of people creating things in and for Downtown Denver neighborhoods.
The Downtown Denver Partnership joined multiple community partners to launch the new online media platform published by Issue Media Group (IMG) which produces similar e-zines in 18 other cities across the United States.
12 focus areas of content in Confluence including higher education; arts and culture; city building; entrepreneurship and innovation; environment; health and wellness; housing; move to Denver; music; parks and public spaces; talent; and transit are the main focus and stories are told by local journalists and authors.
The e-zine's funders include the Downtown Denver Partnership, The Denver Theatre District, Bonfils-Stanton Foundation, Anadarko Petroleum, Colorado State University, the University of Colorado Denver, Community College of Denver and Metropolitan State University of Denver.
