Almost all events are free of charge.
+ DAGT We hold our speaker events at schools across Denver and keen to bring a speaker event to your school. As a result of parents expressing a need to have more time for discussion, DAGT also hold a monthly drop in discussion group. It’s run like a book group but with a short article instead of a whole book to read!
