A concert by Navajo Radmilla Cody follows.

Matt Shepard is a Friend of Mine Though Matthew Shepard’s brutal murder made headlines in 1998, this documentary −directed and produced by his friend Michele Josue− tells the story of his life through interviews with family, friends and teachers. Tonight’s screening at the Denver Performing Arts Complex includes a performance by singer-songwriter Randi Driscoll and will be followed by a Q&A with Josue.

Saturday

The Denver Handmade Homemade Market Shop more than 30 local businesses, artisans and entrepreneurs selling a variety of products, from produce and baked goods to handmade jewelry and ceramics. Members of the Denver Art Society will also be showcasing their art.

Dance & Text Counterpath will host choreographers Aynsley Vandenbroucke and Lauren Bakst, and writer Claudia La Rocco for an inquiry into the convergence of dance and text. This site-specific performance explores the relationships inherent, but not always overt, in these separate forms.

Sunday
