We at The People's Building believe that there is a direct link between arts, wellness, community and a thriving society. We provide a place to explore, educate, and perform while simultaneously giving residents of the Denver metropolitan area a chance to experience and be awakened.
Through high-quality and affordable event, workshop, performance, and rehearsal space we hope to bring a sense of dignity to those in our community who have something to share. As well as provide a beautiful facility for our businesses to hold meetings, social gatherings, and even the occasional wedding.

The history of The People's Building's is as dynamic as Aurora itself. Once a ski shop and then a rent-to-own furniture store, it was acquired by the City of Aurora's Office of Urban Renewal and Redevelopment. They invested over two million into the building's revitalization and it is now utilized as a gallery and a flexible event space for cultural events, workshops, meetings, independent artists, musicians, dancers, and event planners.
