Colorado Business Committee for the Arts (CBCA) is a 38-year-old 501(c)3 nonprofit organization headquartered in Denver, Colo., with the mission to advance Colorado’s creative economy by connecting business and the arts. CBCA leads arts advocacy efforts in the state.

In January 2023, CBCA crafted a questionnaire, with input from local arts leaders, for all the candidates running for Mayor of the City of Denver about their arts, culture and creative industries platform.  The online questionnaire was sent via email on January 12 to all 27 candidates at that time. Candidates were given until January 25 to submit responses via the online questionnaire. CBCA has compiled the responses received by the deadline. Those unedited responses are presented here in alphabetical order by the candidates’ last name.
