Slow City | One Day in Denver

slowcity2
6 weeks ago we walked 13.5 miles across the city for One Day in Denver. From idea to execution, the Slow City event was a joy.
Vast gratitude to:
  • Event organizers for lacing up their creativity sneakers to craft a meaningful and well-organized event: Jill Locantore with WalkDenver, Gosia Kung with PlaceMatters and Rudi Cerri, Michael Chavez and Lisa Gedgaudas with City of Denver Arts & Venues
  • Content contributors for telling the story of ‘why walk’ and for sharing their passions which enrich our 3mph lives: Jonathan Lamb and Michael Ortiz with Like Minded Productions, Robin Munro with Colorado Crush, Mark Sink, Emily Sorensen and Shannon Spurlock with Denver Urban Gardens and Amanda Weaver with 5 Fridges Farm
  • The extraordinary talent and mad skill of videographer Holly McClelland who walked 30% more than anyone with carrying her equipment and often times walking backwards. Great, great work capturing the day.
  • Each of the walking participants for setting aside time to learn about and contribute to Denver’s walking culture. We are so thankful that you are a part of the slow city movement and hope to walk with you again and again!
So, here it is… If you are happy with the end result and feel inspired to share the message, please post it! There will be a shorter version with just clips and music later this week.

The next steps for One Day in Denver include a TV series featuring all the cities who participated. We will keep you in the loop if Slow City is included in the Denver episode so you know when it will air.
