Just when you thought Denver's 150th was going to wind down with the cake-fest on Saturday, the party will carry on in the form of an engaging online project BUCKFIFTY.ORG. The brains behind the project are craftily trying to maintain anonymity, but I can tell you the founding team includes artists, an editor, a design guru and no one named Joe, but they are trying to find one.
BUCKFIFTY.ORG is an online forum for Denverites and those who love Denver (Denverphiles?) to share their passion. Submissions include: art, video, writing, images and anything else that can be wrangled into an electronic format. Submission guidelines are pretty generous:
At buckfifty.org, we want a wide range of content for our site. We’re not placing restrictions on topics; as long as it has something to do with Denver or the Denver area, it can be about people, places, your experience, history, art, politics, or whatever interests you. What we are looking for is some sort of point of view, and hopefully some sort of hook that will make it interesting to read, or look at, listen to, or watch.(Note the superb use of the semi-colon. Don't see that anymore!) The goal is 150 posts in the next six months- about five new submissions a week. Just because you send something in, doesn't mean you'll make the cut - uninspired leftovers from a college essay are not going to make the grade. So what've you got? I can think of a lot of folks who should contribute and you should too! Better yet, pass the buck and get your neighbor to contribute. More details are available here.
Don't miss out on the great Anniversary events this weekend!
